This study analyzed the effects of immersion in mouthwash with different ethanol concentrations and for different durations on the surface roughness of nanohybrid composite resin. Twenty-four specimens were divided into four treatment groups: 17% ethanol-containing mouthwash for 1.5 h, 26.9% ethanol-containing mouthwash for 1.5 h, 17% ethanol-containing mouthwash for 3 h, and 26.9% ethanol-containing mouthwash for 3 h. Surface roughness was then measured using a SJ301 Mitutoyo Surface Roughness Tester. One-way analysis of variance and Tukey's test showed significant differences (p < 0.05) between the surface roughness of the control group and the 26.9% ethanol-containing mouthwash group. This study confirms that immersion in ethanol-containing mouthwash leads to an increase in the surface roughness of nanohybrid composite resin.
