Independent variable is The toothpaste containing grapes, and as a dependent variable is the score of plaque. Analysis of the data processed by a computer program and the level of significance accepted when p <0.05. Result: T-Test on the test plaque index after treatment in groups I and II showed significant differences with p value = 0,001 (p <0,05).
