The generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAP) is an inflammatory disease that can cause rapid and severe destruction of the periodontal tissues. Among its main features are a relatively constant microbiological profile and familial aggregation of cases. In this regard, studies of children of individuals with GAP were performed and identified early clinical and microbiological changes in these individuals suggesting the presence of factors that favor the development of the disease. Thus, the present study aims to evaluate whether toothpastes containing Triclosan would have a benefit in controlling biofilm and alter the salivary microbiota in children whose parents have GAP when compared to children of parents with periodontal health.
