Abstract

Adjunctive use of chlorhexidine and diode laser in localised periodontal pocket decontamination along with scaling and root planing provides favourable outcome. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of diode laser and sub-gingival chlorhexidine chip when used as an adjunct to SRP for non-surgical management of patients having periodontal pockets. 15 patients, 7 males and 8 females belonging to the age group of 18-60 years fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria were included in the study. Baseline measurements PI, GI, PPD, CAL were done. SRP was done and groups were randomly assigned into Group I, Group II, Group III, Group IV to Control group (SRP), SRP + (GaAlAs) diode laser group, SRP + CHX chip group, SRP + (GaAlAs) diode Laser + CHX chip group respectively. Clinical parameters were assessed at 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months. Inter-group comparison of test groups revealed that the CHX chip group and combination of laser decontamination and chlorhexidine chip group showed statistically significant difference in PPD reduction and gain in CAL when compared with diode laser group at 3 and 6 months. The results suggested that chlorhexidine local delivery alone or in combination with diode laser decontamination was effective in improving all parameters when used as adjuncts to SRP in non-surgical periodontal therapy of patients with chronic periodontitis.
