Background: Resin-based composite (RBC) materials are increasingly being used for the restoration of posterior teeth. The present study was conducted to assess the effect of mouth rinses on surface micro hardness of bulk-fill composite resin.
Materials and Methods: The present study was conducted in the dental department of Daswani dental College, Kota, Rajasthan, India. It comprised of 30 disk-shaped specimens prepared for composite resins. Three mouthwashes such as Listerine, Perioguard and Hexidine were used. Specimens were divided into 3 groups of sub groups. In group I, they were immersed in Listerine, in group II in perioguard and in group III in hexidine. The micro hardness values of the specimens were recorded before and after putting in the various mouth rinses. Microhardness was recorded with the help of Vicker’s tester.
Results: Group I had Listerine, group II had Perioguard and group III had Hexidine mouthwashes. Each group had 10 specimens each. The mean microhardness in group I was 59.45, in group II was 59.67 and in group III was 58.14 before immersion. The difference was non- significant (P>0.05). The mean microhardness in group I was 50.12, in group II was 56.24 and in group III was 58.42 after immersion.
Conclusion: All mouthwashes reduced the microhardness of bulk composites. Maximum reduction was seen with Listerine followed by Perioguard and Hexidine.
