ABSTRACT:The aim of this study was to compare the healing of extraction sockets with Manuka honey vs. without manuka honey attending outpatient clinic Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Jaipur Dental College. Thirty subjects were randomized into two groups i.e., group A in which Manuka Honey is placed in the extraction socket & a group B, which is a control group. Main outcome measure was to compare the amount of time required for haemostasis, pain according to VAS scale on 1st, 3rd & 7th day, presence of swelling on 1st, 3rd & 7th day, any other post-operative discomfort such as difficulty in speech, any kind of discharge, and presence of any signs of alveolar osteitis.
