ABSTRACT:Periodontal disease is characterized by inflammation and/or destruction of supporting tissue of the teeth. Bacterial plaque is the primary etiological agent in periodontal diseases. In addition to mechanical plaque removal measures, chemical plaque control measures have also been advocated that can be used as an adjunct to mechanical measures, which together can reduce plaque associated gingivitis. A clinical trial was conducted to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of two commercially available gum gels containing Triphala and Cinnamomum in the reduction of plaque and gingival inflammation in subjects with gingivitis. Total 60 subjects were selected from those diagnosed as having chronic gingivitis between 25 to 40 years were included in the study, out of which 20 (group I) were control group who received scaling only, 20 subjects (group II) received scaling and herbashine herbal gum paint® application (uniroyal biotech) and 20 subjects (group III) received scaling and Hi-ora GA® gum gel application (himalaya herbal health care) and The gingival index described by Loe H. and Silness P. and plaque index described by (Tureskey et al. Modification of Quigley Hein Index) were measured and recorded at baseline, 2 weeks, 4weeks and 6weeks interval. All the values at each time were recorded on appropriate forms during assessment. It was concluded from the present study that both the gel have been found to be effective in improving gingival status and resulted in significant improvement in clinical parameters, HiOra-GA® gum gel was found to be more effective than Herbashine Herbal Gum Paint ®
