Abstract

Gingivitis and periodontal disease are the most common oral diseases affecting the supporting structures of teeth. They are found associated with various systemic diseases like cardiac disease, stroke, diabetes, lung disease and premature delivery. Arresting the initial periodontal disease by non-surgical methods is always better than treating progressive periodontal disease that necessitates more interventional methods of treatment. Initial non-surgical therapy when done along with nutritional supplement will result in better outcome. Organic foods are always ideal for the betterment of health. In our study, we have used the dietary polyphenols, oligomeric proanthocyanidin (obtained from plants) in combination with vitamin C as a nutritional supplement along with nonsurgical treatment (oral prophylaxis) in treating gingivitis. It is found that these polyphenols reduce gingival inflammation and plaque adhesion on the tooth surface by controlling the underlying pathophysiology of inflammation resulting in improvement in overall oral health.
