This study compared the anti-inflammatory efficacy of Triclosan and Flurbiprofen in a gel form on clinical parameters of moderate gingivitis cases. The study comprised of 100 sites from 16 volunteers and used split mouth technique. 0.3% Triclosan/0.3% Flurbiprofen gels applied intracrevicularly once daily for one week. Clinical parameters like Plaque index, Gingival index and Bleeding index scores were recorded at 0 day, 4th day and 8th day. The obtained results showed significant reductions in clinical parameters from baseline to 8th day. This indicates local delivery of 0.3% Triclosan/0.3% Flurbiprofen gel can be used as an anti-inflammatory agents either alone or as an adjunct to scaling in periodontal therapy.
