Background: The objective of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Modified flap operation versus scaling and ultrasonic scaling in adult chronic periodontitis
Methods: The study population included 10 subjects, who visited the out-patient department of periodontics, Govt. Dental College and Hospital Srinagar with complaint of bleeding and sensitivity, diagnosed as chronic periodontitis (Mild or moderate). After conducting routine examinations, Relative attachment and probing depth were measured. The measurement of Relative attachment was made with ocllusal stent as guiding value. Probing depth was made with UNC-15 periodontal probe.
Results: Results showed that Patients with pocket depth (> 5mm) showed favourable results post flap surgery (modified flap operation) than patients with (>5mm) pcket depth who have undergone ultrasonic scaling.
Conclusion: For reduction of probing depth, surgical therapy provides a greater benefit than nonsurgical therapy in deep pockets. For attachment level, nonsurgical therapy provides a greater benefit for initial disease severity levels 1–3 mm and 4–5 mm, and surgical therapy for > 5 mm.
