ABSTRACT

Background: The study was to evaluate the effect on clinical and microbiological analysis of Lactobacillus containing probiotic supplementation adjunctive to initial periodontal therapy in patients with chronic periodontitis. Materials and Methods: 20 sites were selected having diagnosed with Chronic Periodontitis from the Department of Periodontology, I.T.S Dental College, Muradnagar, Ghaziabad. Patients were equally and randomly divided into two groups. Each patient with minimum of pocket probing depth of 4 mm and gingival index of +2.The test group received scaling and root planing (SRP) and pocket irrigation with probiotic suspension, the control group received (SRP) and irrigation with placebo. The clinical and microbiological parameters such as plaque index, gingival index, bleeding on probing, probing pocket depth, clinical attachment level, colony forming unit (CFU/ml) were recorded for each patient at baseline and 21 days. Results: There was significant improvement in the gingival index, pocket probing depth and total bacterial count in test group as compare to control group after 21 days. There was no significant difference seen in plaque index in test and control group. Conclusion: Probiotic containing suspension may be a useful adjuvant agent to slow re-colonization and improve clinical outcomes of chronic periodontitis. Further studies are required to the optimal dosage of the lozenges and time period for that they should be given.
