The aims of this randomised controlled clinical trial are: 1. to compare, in a multicentre study, the early clinical outcomes (pocket depth and bleeding on probing changes) following flap surgery with 2 different protocols of post-operative plaque control: Post-surgical toothbrush + Chlorhexidine (T-CHX, test treatment), Post-surgical toothbrush + Placebo (T-P, control treatment). 2. to evaluate the perceived patient benefits and adverse events associated with such treatments in different dental practices. Experimental Design This will be a randomised multicentre controlled parallel group clinical trial comparing the efficacy of 2 post-operative treatment modalities following flap surgery, enforced for a post-operative period of 4 weeks. No additional professional prophylaxis will be delivered to patients in the first 4 weeks. All patients will be instructed to use a post-surgical soft toothbrush from day 1 after surgery. i) Group 1 will be requested to rinse with CHX-ADS; ii) Group 2 will be requested to rinse with Placebo Clinical outcomes of the 2 groups will be evaluated at different time points after surgery. Healing evaluation outcomes will be set at week 1, 2 and 4. Evaluation of clinical outcomes will be set at 3 and 6 months. Subjective benefits and side effects will be evaluated by questionnaires administered after the procedure at suture removal.
