Stevia and sucrose effect on plaque formation

BEITRÄGE DER FACHTAGUNG

Abstract

An in vivo study was done by measuring the accumulation of dental plaque after rinsing with a solution of 10% sucrose four times daily during 5 days and comparing it with a rinsing of 10% solution of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni four times a day, during 5 days a week. The accumulation of dental plaque after rinsing with Stevia was 57, 82% less than under rinsing with sucrose as measured by the Silness-Löe index and 10, 40% less plaque when measured by O’Leary index of plaque.
