Effect of oral sprays on the growth of dental plaque bacteria. Inhibitory effect of oral sprays (10 μl of stock solution/ disc) on the growth of dental plaque bacteria. Perioe Dental Cooling, Cool Sense, and Dentrix were used as commercial oral spray. Ampicillin (10 μg/disc) was used positive control for assay. Distilled water was used for the control. Relative area of the growth inhibition (clear zone) of dental plaque bacteria was calculated with ImageJ (National Institutes of Health). Each values of individual experiments were expressed as a mean±standard error of three independent experiments. *p<0.01 versus distilled water. Refer to Table 1 for the manufacturers’ information.
