Background and Aim: Plaque control is an effective technique in the prevention and treatment of gingivitis and a critical part of all periodontal treatment procedures. Among different meth-ods of plaque control, the use of antimicrobial toothpastes has gained special importance. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of Nasim and Pooneh antibacterial toothpastes with and ADA approved antimicrobial toothpaste (Crest Complete) on plaque control.

Materials and Methods: In this cross – over study, conducted on 19 adult subjects, plaque re-growth after a 4 – day toothbrushing with Nasim, Pooneh and Crest complete toothpastes as well as water rinsing (negative control) as the only form of oral hygiene was investigated fol-lowing prophylaxis and single brushing with toothpastes, rinsing with toothpastes slurries, twice a day, was used for the following 96 hours. SPSS software, Friedman and Wilcoxon Signed Rank tests were used for data analysis.

Results: Comparison between four groups through non – parametrical Friedman test showed statistically significant differences. Wilcoxon's signed ranks test revealed that only between Pooneh and Nasim toothpastes significant difference did not exist. Average ranks for Pooneh, Nasim, Crest and water were 2.05, 2.45, 1.50 and 4, respectively.

Conclusion: Pooneh and Nasim toothpastes were proved to be effective in plaque regrowth prevention, however, Crest complete in this short –time study yielded more satisfactory results.
