BACKGROUND AND AIM: Bacterial plaque is a biofilm which is related to its host and its exact role is proved in caries and periodontal disease. These days people brush their teeth and use mouthwash. In this research the effect of Jaman solution (Hezar Co., Iran) was compared with Biotene mouth rinse in an in-vitro study.

METHODS: Biotene mouth rinse (Laclede Co., US) contains 4 antibacterial enzymes. Four different bacteria such as Streptococcus (S.) salivarius, S.sobrinus, S.sanguis and Actinomyces viscosus were cultured in the lab. The effects of Jaman, Biotene and penicillin on these bacteria were tested by using disc diffusion method.

RESULTS: The antibacterial effects of Jaman and Biotene did not show any significant differences. Both of Jaman and Biotene showed significant differences with blank disc and penicillin.

CONCLUSIONS: According to the results, the antibacterial effect of Biotene is not better than Jaman.
