Background: The oral cavity being a natural moist environment, topical application reduces its potency and effectiveness, but the nanoparticles in the Nano-Bio Fusion (NBF) gel are efficient in rapidly penetrating the cells. The purpose of the study aimed to evaluate clinically and microbiologically the effectiveness of locally delivered NBF technology gel as an adjunctive therapy to scaling and root planing (SRP) in the treatment of chronic periodontitis. Materials and Methods: Six chronic periodontitis patients with 76 sites and probing pocket depth (PD) between 5 and 7 mm were selected in a randomized controlled clinical trial. SRP was performed in both control and test group followed by NBF gel application in 38 sites. The plaque index, gingival index, papillary bleeding index, probing PD, and clinical attachment level (CAL) were recorded at baseline, 6 weeks, and 3 months. Supragingival microbial plaque analysis was done at baseline and 6 weeks interval. The statistical analysis with paired t-test was used to compare the test and control sites. Results: From baseline to a period of 3 months, a statistically significant difference was seen between both groups for PD, CAL, P value being PD (P = 0.001) and CAL (P = 0.01) along with the significant reduction of colony-forming units of aerobic periodontopathogens. Conclusions: Locally delivered NBF gel exhibited a significant improvement compared with SRP alone in chronic periodontitis.
