Hypochlorous acid inactivates oral pathogens and a SARS-CoV-2-surrogate

ConclusionsHOCl solution (45 –60 ppm) is still effective against oral pathogens and SAR-CoV-2 surrogate viruses even in the presence of saliva and after passing through the dental unit water line. This study indicates that the HOCl solution can be used as therapeutic water or mouthwash and may ultimately reduce the risk of airborne infection in dental practice.
