Abstract: Naturopathy has gained a lot attention is the last decade. Uses of natural products are not only considered safe, but also non-invasive. Propolis is a resin-like material made by bees from the buds of poplar and cone-bearing trees. Propolis has antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and antifungal property. When used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing, propolis is effective in reducing bacterial count. So the aim of this study is to compare the efficiency of propolis with the gold standard, which is chlorhexidine. A detailed case history will be taken and the depth of the pockets will be estimated. Plaque samples will be taken from the site with maximum pocket depth. Scaling and root planning followed by subgingival irrigation of the entire mouth with the help of irrigating needles will be performed. Irrigation will be repeated after 7 days and the 14 days from the 1 st sitting. The plaque samples will be collected on the 15 th day from the same site and the pocket depth will be pre-estimated.
