Abstract: Aim: The present study was done to compare 0.1 % curcumin mouthwash with 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash as an adjunctive to scaling and root planing in the treatment of moderate periodontal pockets. Material & Methods: A total of 66 patients with generalized chronic periodontitis were divided into 3 groups. Group I= SRP+ 0.2% chlorhexidine mouthwash, Group II= SRP + 0.1% curcumin mouthwash, Group III= SRP + placebo 0.9% sodium chloride solution. Plaque Index (PI), pocket depth (PD) and clinical attachment level (CAL), and microbial load per sample is estimated by determining the Colony Forming Units (CFU/ml). All the parameters were recorded before (baseline) and after scaling and root planning (SRP), at 1 month and 3 months intervals. The obtained data were analyzed with ANOVA and Bonferroni post hoc tests. Results: PI and BOP scores showed significant (p?0.05) decrease from baseline to 1 month and 3 months in all the three groups except in Group III, where no significant difference was found from 1month to 3 months. Intergroup comparison at 3 months between Group I and Group II with Group III showed a statistically significant difference (P?0.001). PD and CAL showed a significant difference (P?0.001) in all three groups from baseline to three months with no significant difference between them at 3 months post-operative. The differences in CFU values from baseline to three months (P?0.001) were significant in all three groups with no significant difference was observed in Group III at 3 months post-operative. Conclusion: Results observed in this study suggest that 0.1% CMN can be used as an adjunctive antimicrobial agent along with SRP in the treatment of moderate periodontal pockets.
