Are Jason brand natural mouthwashes effective?

Have any of your patients used Jason brand mouth rinses? Do they work as well as Listerine or Crest Pro Health? I have a perio maint patient that started using this product and I’m concerned it won’t be as effective.

I did a search on PubMed and can’t find any studies on Jason Mouthwash. Chlorhexidine gluconate followed by Listerine are the gold standard. On a side note, watch out with recommending Crest Pro Health, it contains stannous fluoride which can cause staining and tissue sloughing. Stannous fluoride is effective against caries, but as a hygienist the stain is beyond frustrating to deal with! Also, remember that rinses only reach about 2 mm into a gingival sulcus and most patients have deeper pockets than that, so nothing replaces brushing and flossing (or whatever interdental cleaning method is best for the patient)!

I don’t have any background in the efficacy of Jason’s. However, The Natural Dentist, I have found, to be a great all natural, medicament additive, that is just as effective as chlorohexadine, without the staining as a side effect. My office places every Perio pt on this and it truly is effective.
