EXECUTIVE SUMMARY of an article in preparation for publication 

Ready by: Dennis Cvitkovitch PhD, Professor, School of Dentistry, College of Toronto.

X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus is a preventative, non-prescription mouthrinse. It gives therapeutic advantages, and must be acknowledged for its potential use in-office as an efficient Pre-Procedural Mouthrinse (PPMR), and beneficial by right this moment’s dental skilled for oral self-care.

With the onset of COVID-19, the suspension of dental remedies and the next return to delivering all dental care, most oral well being authorities throughout Canada have beneficial or urged the usage of varied PPMRs. In dentistry, PPMRs have been used for a few years to assist cut back the aerosolized microbial load throughout dental remedies. The proximity of dental professionals to the affected person throughout dental care, the era of aerosols, and the latest documentation of SARS-CoV-2 in saliva have mentioned the oral cavity as a possible reservoir for COVID-19 transmission. With the present pandemic, dental professionals have a essential function to play in minimizing the affect of airborne transmission as a result of aerosol producing procedures employed.

The Institute for Antiviral Analysis at Utah State College carried out testing of X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus in opposition to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Outcomes confirmed that X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.2% and X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.05% have been each cytotoxic to SARS-CoV-2 viral cells, and exhibited viricidal exercise, lowering the virus under the restrict of detection after a 1-minute contact time (LRV>1.9, >90%), equal to a 98.74% discount. This demonstrates the power of X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus to work as an efficient PPMR.

Additional analysis carried out on the School of Dentistry on the College of Toronto with X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.2% and the X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.05% in contrast favorably to a prescription rinse containing .12% chlorhexidine for his or her potential to kill and/or inhibit a number of oral pathogens, together with:

• Porphyromonas gingivalis, a proteolytic anaerobe related to periodontal illness, that primarily impacts adults by inflicting destruction of alveolar bone leading to eventual tooth loss. This bacterium has additionally been proven to colonize distal organs together with the center [1, 2] and mind [3], doubtlessly inflicting systemic issues together with coronary heart and Alzheimer’s illness;

• Streptococcus mutans, the commonest micro organism related to the initiation of caries, predominant in childhood caries [4];

• Streptococcus sobrinus, an extra threat issue exacerbating caries exercise [4];

• Lactobacillus casei, predominant in childhood caries [5], and;

• Candida albicans, positively related to early childhood caries [6,7], a comorbidity of hyposalivation [8], predominant in longterm care residents with prostheses, and a threat issue for pneumonia [9]

After publicity to the complete energy rinses for one minute, all three rinses demonstrated: a 3-log discount (i.e. 99.9% killing) was detected in opposition to P. gingivalis; in C. albicans, there was not less than a 4 log discount (>99.99% killing); L. casei was killed with >99.999% effectivity; S. mutans confirmed not less than 99% of the examined cells have been killed; for S. sobrinus, no colonies have been detected with any of the rinses for the publicity time detected (>99.999% killing).

Within the pure atmosphere of dental plaque, micro organism develop as a biofilm connected to the tooth floor. When the three rinses have been examined in opposition to biofilm-grown cells, probably the most distinguished impact was noticed with P. gingivalis and X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.2% remedy, with a 50% discount in biofilm biomass after 10 minutes of publicity. With X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus 0.05%, there was a 40% discount in biofilms, whereas the chlorhexidine rinse was solely capable of cut back biofilms by 10%. X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus (0.05% & 0.2%) are confirmed mouthrinses for optimum outcomes. The latest testing information on the X-PUR Opti-Rinse Plus efficacy in opposition to SARS-CoV-2, will ease the deliberation of what PPMR to make the most of as an vital security measure in stopping viral transmission for a lot of well being professionals. Contemplating the bactericidal and fungicidal capacities as nicely, the advantages to oral well being, and thus systemic well being, are quite a few.
