Abstract

Background: The aim was to compare the effect of three different mouthwashes cranberry, hiora and chlorhexidine on the management of localized periodontitis.
Materials and Methods: The study model comprised of three groups and 10 subjects will be taken in each group(5 sites each) for sample collection at baseline and 21 days. Sites in each group were irrigated with chlorhexidine, hiora and cranberry mouthwashes. In each group sites with pocket depth more than or equal to 4mm and less than 7mm were selected. The plaque samples which were taken from the subjects on baseline were inoculated on blood agar plates and colony count was taken.
Results: The mean change in the GI, PI within the groups when compared from baseline to 21 days was found to be statistically significant. At 21 days the mean PD was found to be 2.90±0.57 in group 1, 3.90±0.57 in group 2 and 2.30±0.48 in group 3. The mean % difference in the microbial count(Aa) from baseline to 21 days was found to be less in group 2 (32.14%) when compared with group 1 (70.93%)and group 3(62.04%). The microbial count (Pg) from baseline to 21 days was found to be less in group 2 (24.03%) when compared with group 1 (50.98%) and group 3(66.46%).
Conclusion: Herbal products like Cranberry can prove to be effective or better alternatives to Chlorhexidine in improving the oral health with added systemic benefits and minimal side effects.
