Background & Aim: the main objective of this study was to compare the efficacy of selective 10 types of Iranian and foreign- made toothbrushes in removing the microbial plaque.

Methods & Materials: In the experimental study, Iranian- made toothbrushes including Mina, Mojan, Laleh, Jordan, Jarda and foreign- made ones including Oral-B, GUM, Crest, Dr.Best and Al-Falij were assessed. 240 students in 3 groups used these toothbrushes in different period (one, two or three months). at the end of each month each person was examined and the plaque index was measured.

Results: Results showed that the efficacy of all types of toothbrushes in the same month and the efficacy of one type of toothbrush in different month's, has no significant difference.

Conclusion: So, it is concluded not only we can prescribe Iranian made toothbrushes to remove the micribial plaque but also we can be sure of efficacy of toothbrushes during 3 months of usage.
