This article presents the results of a survey of students from different faculties to determine the level of their oral hygiene practice alongside with clinical and laboratory studies of the efficacy of Tameritum toothpaste as a prophylactic agent. The students’ oral hygiene practices and the antibacterial activity of the toothpaste against specific bacterial strains in its practical use were studied. The results of the study make it possible to recommend Tameritum toothpaste for daily oral hygienic care in adults for prevention of caries and periodontal inflammatory diseases.
