New study on NaHCl rinse

Has anyone heard about the studies involving a diluted NaHCl rinse (one part NaHCl, 30 parts water) used 2x a week to reduce inflammation in both gingivitis and perio? Medline has an article about it, pretty striking results even” without flossing”.

If I give the link it requires an account with Medline. But if you google search it (sodium hypochlorite rinse for perio) it will come up. Then you can print it and show others. We are doing little kits at our office with a 3 ml pipette and a small medicine cup and some mint drops so patients can make the rinse at home. It has to be mixed fresh each use. 15 ml water (one tablespoon) to 0.5 ml NaHCl (~1/10 tsp) and 2 drops mint breath drops, swish for 30 sec and spit out. Excited to see results!!
