Materials and Methods: A total of 20 Patients of chronic periodontitis with pocket probing depth ≤ 5mm were divided into control group1: (SRP + chlorhexidine gel) and test group 2 (SRP + blue®m gel). Standardized periodontal parameters including Gingival index (GI), pocket probing depth (PPD), clinical attachment loss (CAL) were measured at baseline & 1 month respectively. Total bacterial count was assessed semi quantitatively at baseline and 1 month.
Result & Conclusion
To summarise with, two of the gels i.e chlorhexidine gel and Blue®m gel can be used as an reliable option or alternative to SRP, in the present study Blue®m gel has shown to be fairly and coequally effective when compared to the chlorhexidine gel in treating periodontal pockets with mild to moderate depths.
