Abstract

INTRODUCTION : Periodontitis is a progressive multifactorial illness that affects the gingiva, underlying tissues, and bone. Periodontitis is caused by inflammatory changes that reach the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. These changes are irreversible and destructive, eventually leads to tooth loss. Treatment for periodontitis can be both surgical and non surgical, yet there are some disadvantages. Local drug delivery system of antimicrobial agents are extensively studied to repress the limitations caused by systemic drugsGreen tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world. It has a variety of bioactive compounds in it. As a result, the efficacy of green tea as an adjuvant to scaling and root planning was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS : The study included forty patients with chronic periodontitis (4-6 mm) who visited the Saveetha Dental College's Department of Periodontics in Chennai. They were divided into two groups at random: Group A and Group B. Group A is the control group, which received scaling and root planing as well as green tea administration. The control group, known as Group B, got just scaling and root planing. RESULTS: In our research, there was a significant variation in probing depth from 5.67±0.42 to 3.94±0.35 and clinical attachment loss from 5.97±0.42 to 3.16±0.35 after treatment were observed. On observing the test and control group, it is evident that there is better oral hygiene in patients in the test group and was statistically significant. CONCLUSION: Green tea catechism can be utilised as a local medication delivery mechanism to promote periodontal health.
