Influence of a single application of subgingival chlorhexidine gel or tetracycline paste on the clinical parameters of adult periodontitis patients.

The clinical effects of subgingivally placed 1% chlorhexidine gel (w/w) and 40% tetracycline (w/w) paste in periodontal pockets of 22 adult periodontitis patients were studied. The 2 agents were applied following scaling and root planing in pockets exceeding 4 mm. The patients were randomly divided into 3 groups: (a) scaling and root planing (SCRP) only, the control group; (b) corsodyl gel+SCRP; (c) Tetracycline paste+SCRP. Gel or paste were gently applied using a syringe with a blunt needle until the selected pocket was overfilled. Evaluations were made of clinical parameters including the plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI), bleeding index (GI-S), probing pocket depths, probing attachment levels and position of the gingival margin. The results suggested that all the treatment modalities were effective in producing statistically significant improvements in clinical parameters. It was concluded that the conventional treatment modalities were essential in the treatment of periodontal diseases, but in view of the structure of the periodontal pocket and adjacent complex root surface, subgingival drug application in certain cases, might also provide adjunctive improvement.[1]
