Aim: To compare the clinical benefit of full-mouth(FM-SRP) debridement against multiple session (MS-SRP) debridement in patients with chronic periodontitis up to 3 month, in a randomized clinical trial.
Materials and Methods: Sixty subjects were randomly assigned to FM-SRP and MS-SRP groups. At baseline and after 3 months, probing pocket depth (PPD), and plaque index (PlI) and bleeding on probing (BoP) were recorded.
Results:- There was a reduction in the levels of probing pocket depth but no statistically significant difference between treatment groups in intervals of 30, 60 and 90 days. For bleeding following pocket probing, was found statistical difference for 30 and 60 days, where the groups of full-mouth showed more reduction than conventional therapy. But in 90 days, there was no significant difference between groups.
Conclusion: At the evaluation 90 days after treatment, no statistical difference was found be¬tween the two periodontal therapies
