Title: Clinical and microbiological evaluation of dental materials containing Brazilian red propolis


Fixed appliance therapy leads to an increase in biofilm accumulation around orthodontic bands and brackets. It has been noted in some studies that the number of cariogenic and gingival bacteria tends to increase in patients with bonded fixed orthodontic appliances, because brackets and band are plaque retentive factors.  Propolis is a complex resinous mixture collected by bees, with high medicinal, historical and economic value. The chemical composition of propolis depends on the biodiversity and the phytogeographic position of the beehives. Among the types of propolis stands out Brazilian Red Propolis (BRP). Brazilian Red Propolis (BRP) can be found in beehives located in the stem of mangrove bushes and sea and river coasts in Brazilian northeast. Its medicinal use is extensive due to its pharmacological properties, among them we mention: anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant and antiproliferative. The objective of this presentation is to present results about  Brazilian Red Propolis (BRP) containing-toothpaste against cariogenic and gingival bacteria in orthodontic patients.
