Objectives: This study aimed to evaluate the changes in clinical indexes related to periodontitis, such as malodor, gingival and plaque indexes, during the adjuvant use of a high pressure oral irrigator (COMORAL ® , SMDsolutions, Seoul, Korea) in volunteers. Methods: We recruited 17 volunteers from an advertisement posted on Dankook University's bulletin board. The oral malodor, gingival index, and plaque index of each volunteer were during the adjuvant use of a high pressure oral irrigator

The oral malodor, gingival index, and plaque index measured after 2 and 4 weeks of use significantly decreased (P<0.05) compared with the baseline values obtained before the start of the study. Conclusions: The adjuvant use of a new high pressure oral irrigator with routine tooth brushing in volunteers may more effectively manage daily oral hygiene.
