Treatment of chronic periodontitis affected patients is based on measures for reduction/ eradication of periodontal pathogens and alteration of the systemic and local host susceptibility. This study aimed at evaluation the effects of topical application of Atridox (Doxycycline gel) in management of chronic periodontitis. Subjects and Methods: This study was carried out on 15 patients(aged 25-55) with chronic periodontitis. They were received scaling and root planning(SRP) alone in one side and SRP plus Atridox (Doxycycline gel) in other side. Each individual was subjected to the following measurements: 1- Evaluation of the clinical parameters pre and post treatment to detect the outcome of the treatment modality . 2- Dental plaque samples initially and at 3,6,9 and 12 months were obtained for microbiological evaluation . Results: 1- Atridox (Doxycycline gel) delivered locally into periodontal diseased sites reduced all subgingival bacteria. 2- Both treatment modality led to a highly statistically signifiant reduction in microbiological counts as well as clinical parameters applied. No clinical relevant side effects were observed. Key worDs: Local delivery antimicrobial agents / Medical periodontal therapy / ATRIDOX gel
