Background: Present days justified the significant clinical improvements when severe chronic periodontitis was treated with one-stagefull-mouth disinfection instead of standard conventional treatment strategy using continuous SRP quadrant per quadrant. Recently Ayurvedic drugs are effective for the treatment of Periodontitis with the notable upgrade in clinical parameters. This study aims to compare the effect of Chlorhexidine & Ayurvedic drugs for full mouth disinfection.
Aim and Objective:To compare and evaluate the clinical benefits of Chlorhexidine (mouth rinse + gel) and Ayurvedic drugs (Himalaya mouth rinse + gel) in one-stagefull-mouth disinfection, in chronic periodontitis patients.
Materials and Methods: A total of 30 systemically healthy patients with chronic periodontitis having pocket depth ≥ 5 mm participated in this study. They were randomly divided into 3 groups using a computer-generated random number table. Group A: full-mouth SRP quadrant per quadrant, at 2 weeks interval.Group B: Full mouth disinfection using Chlorhexidine and Group C: Full mouth disinfection using Ayurvedic drugs (Himalaya mouth rinse & gel).The clinical parameters evaluated at baseline, 3 weeks & 6 weeks are Probing pocket depth (PPD), Plaque index (PI),Clinical attachment level (CAL), and Modified sulcus bleeding index (MSBI).
Result: Both Group B and Group C showed statistically significant improvements in all clinical parameters at 3 weeks and 6 weeks compared to baseline.
Conclusion:This study concludes that one-stagefull-mouth disinfection using both chlorhexidine andayurvedic drugs is advantageous for the treatment of patients suffering from chronic periodontitis.
