Abstract|ملخص البحث

The purpose of this study was to design to evaluate the effect of the daily intake of the green tea on the periodontal diseases. 60 systemically healthy female patients (age range 26-49 years) with chronic periodontitis and minimum of 20 teeth were selected from the outpatient department of the faculty. Pregnant and lactating mothers were excluded from the study. Patients were divided into three groups using a block randomization method. The first group received scaling and root planning alone (SRP). The second group (SRP+GT) received scaling and root planning at baseline along with green tea for a period of 4 months. The third group received only green tea (GT) for a period of 4 months without any professional SRP. All the three groups showed significant (P < 0.05) improvement in all the parameters measured at baseline and compared at 2 and 4 months. The comparison of Plaque Index 2 and 4 months was highly significant (P < 0.05) for all the three groups. Comparison of gingival index among the three groups at 4 months showed statistically significant results (P > 0.05). These results suggest significant improvement in the oral hygiene status between groups as compared to baseline and at 2 months. The Periodontal Index comparisons between the groups at baseline scores, 2 months and 4 months did not showed any statistically significant outcomes (P < 0.05). This study has reaffirmed the beneficial effects of green tea on periodontal diseases for prophylactic as well as therapeutic purpose.
