ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of locally delivered 2% lemongrass essential oil in gel form as an adjunct to scaling & root planing. Materials & Methods: A total of 100 sites were selected randomly from 50 subjects with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis in the age group of 20-60 years. 2% lemongrass essential oil used in indigenous preparation of gel and placed in moderate to deep periodontal pockets after scaling and root planing. Results: Statistically significant reduction in PD and gain in RAL and increased reduction of GI and PI in the experimental group than in the control group, though it was statistically nonsignificant seen in the experimental group as compared to the control group at 6 weeks and 3 months. Conclusion: 2% lemongrass essential oil gel appears to be an effective alternative agent that can be used for effective and safe local drug delivery as an adjunct to mechanical nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
