Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to document changes in plaque pH when an acidic challenge was followed by rinsing with miswak extract (Salvadora persica), and to evaluate the effect of miswak rinse on parotid gland secretion rate. Plaque pH was measured in 3-day-old plaque using the microtouch electrode. Rinsing with miswak extract, compared with water rinsing, resulted in protracted elevation of plaque pH (> 6.0). The difference in plaque pH between miswak extract and water rinse was statistically significant at 30 min (p < 0.001). Rinsing with miswak extract stimulated parotid gland secretion (p < 0.01). In conclusion, miswak extract raised the plaque pH, suggesting a potential role in caries prevention.
