Abstract

Background: Plaque is the main cause of caries and diseases of the oral cavity. Caries and periodontal disease can be prevented by removing plaque. One of the way to inhibit the formation of plaque is by brushing the teeth with toothpaste. In this study used toothpaste with the content of apples (Pyrus malus) because, according to previous studies, into apples there are catechins that can inhibit the formation of dental plaque by inhibiting the glycosylation process and kill the bacteria in plaque. Methods: The research design of clinical trials conducted by the post test only control group design. The sample of this study is the boarding school students Qosim Al-Hadi, Mijen, Semarang, as many as 30 students were divided into two groups of randomized control group and treatment group. As an independent variable is the provision of toothpaste containing apples, while the dependent variable is the score of dental plaque. Data analysis was processed with SPSS for Windows 15.0 with a standard test of significance p <0.05. Result: Difference score of plaque in the control groups (student without action) is higher than the treatment groups (student who are brushing them teeth with toothpaste content of apples). The result of the statistic with Independent Sample T-Test showed a significant difference of 0,015 (p<0,05) between the control groups with the treatment groups. Conclusion: There are significant differences between the scores of plaque in the control groups with the treatment groups.
