Objectives: This study is to compare measuring gingival and peridontal indices and changes in dental plaque per period using a three mix types of dentifrice and to investigate dental diseases preventive effects depending on gingivitis reducing effect of dentifrice through a clinical experiment. Methods: This study targeted adult females and males with mild to moderate gingivitis from age 20 to 60. The Calculus index, Papillary Marginal Attached Gingival (PMA) index, Gingival index, Patient Hygiene Performance (PHP) index, and Plaque index were measured at pre-experiment and at 1, 2, 4 weeks post experiment. Results: The PMA, Gingival index, PHP index, plaque index of experimentla group decreased after 4 weeks (p<0.05). Conclusions: A three mix types of dentifrice for relieving tooth sensitivity was verified to be effective in removing dental plaque and reducing gingivitis.
