Effect of Non Surgical Periodontal Therapy on Salivary Ph in Periodontal Disease: A Randomized Clinical Trial
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
The aim of the study is to assess the effect of pre and post Non Surgical Periodontal Therapy on Salivary pH in patients suffering with Chronic Periodontits. Patients reporting to the Department of Periodontics, I.T.S Dental College, Hospital & Research Centre, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh are included in the study. It is a randomized clinical trial where patients are randomized into two groups of Generalized Chronic Gingivitis and Generalized Chronic Periodontitis. The study are performed with the Sample size of 30 patients and 2 months Period were included. Unstimulated Saliva is collected at the first visit when patient reports to the OPD for NSPT. Clinical Parameters are recorded and NSPT is performed for the patient. Post 14 days of the treatment, saliva is collected and analysed for pH and clinical parameters are recorded again. pH is determined using a pH meter. Data is collected and statistically interpreted. The statistical testing to be used in this study are Mann Whitney U Test, Chi- square test and Paired t-test. There was statistically significant difference in plaque index, gingival index and oral hygiene index between two groups. There was a definite reduction in pH post SRP but it was statistically non significant due to relatively smaller sample size. Further research is required to substantiate the results for the same.
