ORAL IRRIGATION – A TREASURE TROVE IN PERIODONTAL DISEASE MANAGEMENT.

Abstract

Periodontal therapy centers around the removal and control of plaque and the restoration of a normal bacterial flora to the periodontal sulcus. To help achieve this goal periodontal pockets have been irrigated, as adjunctive therapy, by a variety of means intended to deliver chemotherapeutic agents to this area and thereby reduce their supragingival and subgingival microflora.Rinsing alone has been found to be an ineffective means of penetrating into periodontal pockets but supragingival irrigation with a syringe and needle using hand pressure was found to partially reach into periodontal pockets.
