There are various treatment modalities available, which includes surgical and non surgical management. Non surgical management includes scaling, root planning and administration of drugs like analgesics, antibiotics. The common problem encountered in treating periodontal disease with medicines is drug resistance, allergy and reduction in beneficial natural flora.

This is a review article on alternative medicines used in treating commonly occurring periodontal diseases like gingivitis, bad breath and periodontitis.
