Abstract :

Periodontal disease is a broad phrase that refers to a variety of diseases that damage the tooth\'s supporting components. Chronic , Aggressive & systemic disease-associated are all examples of periodontal disorders. The breakdown of the periodontal ligament, resorption of the alveolar bone, and migration of the epithelium along the tooth surface define these diseases. It is a localized inflammatory reaction brought on by bacterial infection of a periodontal pocket, which is often accompanied by supra & sub plaque. Methodology: Different mechanisms and ways to medication release in the periodontal pocket are used in local drug delivery. Such technologies deliver the medicine directly into the periodontal pocket and provide up to 11 days of continuous release. Conclusion: This study exhibited that albeit careful SRP is a successful therapy technique for disposal of chronic periodontal pockets, further developed outcomes can be acquired by adjunctive utilization of locally controlled antibiotic medication tetracycline fibres and others such products.
