Abstract

The present study evaluates and compares the clinical effects of systemic metronidazole and ornidazole in sites with or without scaling and root planing (SRP) in generalized chronic periodontitis patients in terms of gingival scores(GS), Probing depth(PD) and Bleeding on probing(BOP). A total of 40 patients suffering from chronic periodontitis (18-42 years) were selected & randomly divided equally into three groups on the basis of the treatment plan. The clinical parameters were assessed at baseline i.e. day 0, day 7 and day 14 post-treatment. Clinical parameters gingival inflammation, pocket depth and bleeding on probing over a period of 14 days Ornidazole + SRP proved to be a better mode of treatment. Significant improvement was noted in all the five treatment modalities in treating chronic generalized periodontitis.
