Abstract:Chlorhexidine (CHX) is widely used in a number of dental applications to reduce inflammation as well as swelling of gums and gum bleeding. We investigate anti-adherent effect of CHX grafted titanium on oral pathogens such as S. mutans and S. aureus respectively. CHX grafted titanium surfaces show good anti-adherent properties.
