Context: The use of herbal compounds is a comparatively safer alternative to synthetic compounds for periodontal therapy. Aim: This study aims to investigate effect of extracts from pomegranate in a chip and gel form on periodontitis following scaling and root planing in adult periodontitis patients. Settings and Design: An in vivo prospective study. Materials and Methods: Thirty patients of adult periodontitis with initial pocket depth ≥4 mm were enrolled into the research and divided randomly into three groups, (10 in every group). After baseline examination, scaling root planing of tooth was achieved. Then subgingival application of medicated chips in Group 1, gel in Group 2, and placebo in Group 3 was done. Plaque index, gingival index, probing pocket depth, and relative attachment ranges were recorded at baseline, 21 days and 45 days. Statistical Analysis Used: Analysis of variance test. Results: The study confirmed significant improvements of plaque index ratings in Group 1 at day 21. It showed significant improvements of gingival index scores, probing pocket depth, and clinical attachment at day 21 and 45. Gingival index rankings and probing pocket depth were extensively elevated altogether in three groups at day 21 and 45. Relative attachment degree was extensively raised in Group 1 and Group 2 at day 21 and day 45 and in Group 3 at day 45. The relative attachment degrees confirmed significance at day 21 between Group 1 and Group 2, and Group 1 and Group 3. Conclusion: Pomegranate extracts in chip and gel shape may offer additionally advantages to scaling and root planing for remedy of periodontal pockets.
