Cover Story (view full-size image): An in vitro study was conducted to identify the relationship between oral bacteria growth in dentistry students in differing concentrations of turmeric mouth rinses. Bacteria sampled from five test subjects were exposed to treatments of chlorhexidine gluconate and prepared turmeric mouth washes of increasing concentration. Comparison of growth rates of oral bacteria suggested that turmeric solutions within a concentration range of 7.357 and 29.5mg/mL were unlikely to produce a bacteriostatic or bactericidal effect, and, conversely, increased bacterial growth. This study suggests that homemade turmeric mouth rinses may contribute to oral bacterial growth. View this paper.
