ABSTRACT:
Introduction: Gingivitis is a non -destructive, plaque induced infection that causes inflammation of the gingiva. Coffee is considered to be the biggest source of dietary cancer prevention agents in industrialized countries. Caffeine, caffeic corrosive and chlorogenic corrosive are the dynamic components of coffee that have found to have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative impacts.
Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of Coffee as an oral gel in the reduction of plaque and gingivitis.
Materials and Method: This single center, randomized controlled clinical trial was carried out among 30 participants with mild to moderate gingivitis. Group I, Scaling with application of coffee gel (Test) and Group II, Scaling only (Control) [n=15]. Group I subjects were instructed to use coffee gel twice daily following scaling. Clinical parameters (Turesky Gilmore Glickman Modification of Quigley Hein Plaque Index and Loe and Silness Gingival Index) were recorded at baseline,15 day and 1month post-operatively. Student’s paired t test and Independent t-test were used for intra and inter group comparison of clinical parameters.
Result: On intragroup comparison, both the groups showed a statistically significant difference at 1 month. But on intergroup comparison, there was no statistically significant difference between the test group and control group.
