An innovative mouth rinse solution developed at the National University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISIS) in cooperation with researchers

An innovative mouth rinse solution developed at the National University of Science and Technology MISIS (NUST MISIS) in cooperation with researchers from Vyatka State University was shown to have a substantial impact on oral cavity microflora, removing 83 percent of dental plaque.

The product’s effectiveness was proven during clinical trials at the Dentistry Department of Kirov State Medical University.

Dentists currently recommend mouthwash and oral irrigators (devices that use a stream of pulsating water to remove dental plaque) as the best supplements in oral hygiene, helping kill bacteria that cause plaque, and remove food debris between teeth that cannot be removed with a toothbrush or floss. Together with medical experts, NUST MISIS researchers developed an oral rinse that, if used regularly, suppresses pathogenic oral bacteria, reducing the risk of dental carries and gum diseases. The product’s effectiveness hinges on the use of metal nanoparticles. Experiments showed that these particles stop bacteria that cause plaque from growing.
