Background: Chemical agents have been increasingly used as an adjunct to mechanical control. The use of a mouthwash augments maintenance of oral health through its antiplaque and antibacterial chemical properties.Recently, Probiotics can be used an effective alternative for other traditional mouthrinses in reducing plaque accumulation and gingival inflammation. Aim: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of a probiotic and chlorhexidine mouth rinses on plaque and gingival accumulation in children. Materials and Methods: Randomized controlled 14 day trial including 30 healthy children (6–8 years) was done in which 10 children were in control group and 20 children were instructed to rinse 5ml/day for 1 min of each solution (probiotics and chlorhexidine) for 14 days. Results: A Statistically significanct difference was noted between mean PI and mean GI score of control group when compared with probiotic and chlorhexidine after 14 days in comparison to baseline (P < 0.001). However, there was no significant difference in mean plaque accumulation and gingival inflammation between the probiotics and chlorhexidine on the 14th day examination. Conclusion: Probiotics mouth rinse was effective in reducing plaque accumulation and gingival inflammation in 6 to 8 year old children.
