It is extremely important to prevent post-operative sensitivity following placement of amalgam restoration. An attempt had been made by conducting a study in 27 patients (having 30 class I and/or class II lesions) for post-operative sensitivity after amalgam restorations by using CHX as a cavity cleanser in one group and distilled water in another for toilet of the cavity. There was a significant remarkable reduction in post-operative sensitivity where CHX was used as cavity cleanser. Hence CHX should be routinely advocated as a cavity cleanser. Moreover it is also very effective in prevention of dental caries primarily due to its action on mutans streptococci.
