    Objective: The objective of this study is to establish the difference in the salivary pH after rinsing with plain water, chlorhexidine (CHX) mouthwash, and herbal mouthwash and to compare the same. Materials and Methods: The sample size of the study is 30. Each participant will be subjected to either plain water or CHX mouthwash or herbal mouthwash rinsing. The salivary pH was measured using uncontaminated pH strips placed in the floor of the mouth for 30 s. The salivary pH was measured before rinsing and after rinsing. The results were compared and analyzed to determine the difference in the salivary pH between the use of plain water, CHX mouthwash, and herbal mouthwash. Results: P value for the analysis of variance test is as follows: After 5 min, 0.048 <0.05 and after 1 h is 0.042 <0.05. The paired t-test was done between every two of the three groups: Between CHX and plain water –0.04 <0.05; between herbal mouthwash and plain water –0.048 <0.05; between CHX and herbal mouthwash –0.045 <0.05. Conclusion: CHX mouthwash proves to have a positive effect on the salivary pH, which is also prolonged in nature. This once again proves the substantivity of CHX mouthwash.
