Health Sciences
Abstract: 

Aim: The purpose of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of whitening toothpaste in reducing extrinsic stain with conventional fluoride paste. Materials and Methods: Total of 33 patients with visible extrinsic dental stains were surveyed. Participants were divided into 3 groups according to different toothpastes used. Lobene Stain Index was measured at baseline, after 2 and 4 weeks. Results: The results at baseline during week 2 showed reduction in stain area in all groups, but the difference was not significant. When comparing the stain level changes after 4 weeks, it was evident that Elgydium Whitening group showed the greatest reduction in stain area; it was significant. (p = 0.005) and stain intensity (p = 0.03) Moreover, this paste exhibited significant reduction of stain intensity (p = 0.03). Changes in stain intensity and area throughout a four- week period were insignificant for Colgate Total Advanced whitening and Colgate Total toothpastes (p > 0.05).The evaluation of the questionnaire data revealed no significant difference in stain intensity or area between smokers and non-smokers (p>0.05).There were also no significant differences between subjects consuming tea/coffee every day and ones who do not (p > 0.05). It can be concluded that these habits did not influence our results. Conclusion: It was determined that whitening toothpastes can remove dental stains. Whitening toothpaste Elgydium whitening was more effective in reducing dental stains than conventional toothpaste Colgate Total and whitening toothpaste Colgate Total Advanced whitening.
