Dentists perform educational intervention on oral hygiene as brushing and mouth rinse

The Board examines the Bill 6228/09, from substitute teacher to Mr Victorio Galli (PMDB-MT), which mandates the presentation of a prescription or to purchase dental mouthwash and the like.

The measure also provides that they should only be sold in pharmacies will be prohibited and that the production, importation and marketing of mouthwash with alcohol.

According to the author, although no indication of universal use, the mouthwash had 2000% increase in consumption in Brazil from 1992 to 2007, according to a survey conducted by the University of São Paulo.

Cancer risk

According to Galli, and are not needed as the toothpaste and brush, research indicates that the use of mouthwash with alcohol increases the risk of cancer of the mouth and pharynx. He said the subject was exposed to scientific review published in late 2008 in the journal of the Australian Dental Academy.

The deputy said that most of the products sold in Brazil contains ethanol. According to the National Agency for Sanitary Vigilance, manufacturers are obliged to inform the packaging the presence of alcohol in the composition, but no other control is exercised over its use. These factors, he said, put the consumption of mouthwash as a public health issue.
