Canadian Dental Hygienists Association Recommendations for Oral Rinses

The latest research clearly indicates that hydrogen peroxide is poorly effective as a Covid-19 pre-rinse. That’s why Public Health Ontario and the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association issued bulletins recommending that hydrogen peroxide no longer be used for that purpose.


: Dental hygienists are encouraged to recommend a demonstrated effective and safe therapeutic oral rinse to their adult clients to complement home care routines for the reduction of plaque and gingival inflammation. Based on the research reviewed, there is no evidence from rigorous, long-term (≥6 months) studies to show that non-commercially available oral rinse formulations are as effective as commercially available prescription or over-the-counter oral rinses in reducing plaque and gingivitis. Consequently, dental hygienists should continue to recommend the use of commercially available oral rinse products that have been proven effective and safe, taking into account specific client needs, to promote optimal oral health.
