Summary

Introduction

New mouthwash solutions containing microencapsulated natural extracts have been developed. Besides antiseptic activity, these solutions have antioxidant and immunoregulatory properties on oral tissues. The objective of this preliminary clinical study was to assess the efficiency of a mouthwash containing microencapsulated natural extracts (GingiNat, LoB5 Foundation, Paris, France) on gingivitis.

Patients and methods

Twenty volunteers (37 ± 2 years) with significant gingivitis (bleeding when tooth-brushing) used a 6% GingiNat® mouthwash solution, two to three times per day (according to oral hygiene habits) for 21 days in addition to their usual oral care. Each volunteer was examined at day 0, 4, 7 and 21. The Löe and Silness Plaque Index, the Russel Periodontal Index, a breath index (halitosis), and oral tissue tolerance were assessed. Finally, each volunteer filled in a daily follow-up form and answered a questionnaire on tolerance and acceptability.

Results

A significant decrease of the dental plaque index was observed on day 4, 7, and 21, in respectively 29, 48 and 71% of volunteers. This decrease reached 18% on day 4 (p = 0.014), 32% on day 7 (p = 0.002), and 47% on day 21 (p < 0.001). A significant decrease of the periodental index was observed on day 4, 7 and 21, in respectively 52, 81 and 95% of volunteers. This decrease reached 30% (p = 0.001) on day 4, 49% (p < 0.001) on day 7, and 78% (p < 0.001) on day 21. A significant improvement of the breath index was noted on day 4, 7, and 21, in respectively 43, 52 and 48% of volunteers. This improvement reached 29% (p = 0.004) on day 4, 35% (p = 0.001) on day 7, and 32% (p = 0.002) on day 21. The mouthwash was well tolerated. The patients liked its effectiveness and organoleptic properties. All patients expressed the wish to continue using this solution.

Discussion

The GingiNat® mouthwash solution at 6% had a significant efficiency on plaque, gingivitis, and halitosis after 21 days of use. This makes it a good complementary treatment for gingivitis. Tolerance and acceptability were good despite the long and repeated use. Further studies are needed to have a detailed analysis of its efficiency in the long run and on patients presenting with various forms of periodontitis.

Summary

Mouthwash solutions are mainly used for their antiseptic properties. They currently include synthetic agents (chlorhexidine, triclosan, etc.) or essential oils (especially Listerine). Many natural extracts may also be used. These associate both antiseptic effects and direct action on host response, due to their antioxidant, immunoregulatory, analgesic, buffering, or healing properties. The best known are avocado oil, manuka oil, propolis oil, grapefruit seed extract, pycnogenol, aloe vera, Q10 coenzyme, green tea, and megamin. The development of new technologies, such as microencapsulation (GingiNat®concept), may allow an in situ slow release of active ingredients during several hours, and open new perspectives for mouthwash solutions.

Mouthwash solutions containing microencapsuled natural extracts

Mouthwash solutions containing microencapsuled natural extracts: In vitro evaluation of antioxidant properties (dental plaque and gingivitis)

J.MouhyiabM.Del CorsocM.-P.HippolytecG.SammartinodD.M.Dohan Ehrenfest

 

Summary

Introduction

New mouthwash solutions containing microencapsulated natural extracts were developed to provide both antiseptic activity and in depth treatment of oral tissues, due to their antioxidant and immunoregulatory properties. The objective of this study was to quantify the antioxidant action of the GingiNat solution (LoB5 Foundation, Paris, France) in an in vitro cell model.

Materials and methods

Diluted GingNat solutions (0.12%, 0.06% and 0.012%) were put in contact with Jurkat type human lymphoid cells in basal radical state (cells at rest) and in provoked oxidative stress conditions (after an UVA + UVB irradiation). The lipid peroxidation was quantified by flow cytometry using a fluorescent probe.

Results

The diluted GingNat solutions at 0.12%, 0.06%, and 0.012% showed a significant antioxidant effect with respectively 122.9%, 117.8% and 119.3% on average. The difference was statistically significant compared to controls for the three concentrations without any significant difference among them. This antioxidant effect was even more significant when cells were in oxidative stress with respectively 155.3%, 139.3%, and 132.5% on average. There was a significant difference between the tested concentrations (p < 0.01).

Discussion

These first in vitro results confirmed the antioxidant properties of the GingiNat solution. These antioxidant properties are significantly higher at stronger concentrations. Further studies are required to analyze the influence of microencapsulation on these results. Clinical trials are needed to confirm these antioxidant properties.
