Abstract: Dental caries is a major problem concerning both primary and permanent teeth. Currently, caries management in children is to minimize the spread and effective use of a wide range of preventive and management strategies. Widespread research is being carried out to create more successful anti-caries agents for control of caries and to provide a good choice of biocompatible restorations. A total of 30 children, belonging to the age group of 4-6 years, with and without dental caries were included in this study. A brief history of their dietary habits and oral hygiene practice was recorded. Based on carious & non-carious status, children were grouped as Group I and Group II. Saliva samples were collected before and after application of GC Tooth Mousse Plus®, and salivary pH was measured. Statistical Package for Social Sciences [SPSS] for Windows Version 22.0 Released 2013. Armonk, NY: IBM Corp., was used to perform statistical analyses. GC Tooth Mousse Plus® application in the carious group effectively increased the salivary pH, which was almost similar to the salivary pH of the non-carious group. GC Tooth Mousse Plus® is an effective topical agent used to control caries. However, further studies should be carried out for a longer follow up period.
