COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF PATIENT’S ACCEPTABILITY BETWEEN POLYETHER AND NON – EUGENOL BASED PERIODONTAL DRESSINGS – A RANDOMISED CONTROL CLINICAL TRIALAbstract
Periodontal dressings were widely used after flap surgery to protect the surgical site since long. This study compared polyether urethane dimethacrylate resin based Barricaid dressing and non-eugenol based periodontal dressings in the perspective of pain, esthetics and patient acceptance using a randomized split-mouth study design. Fifteen patients coming to the Department of Periodontics at ITS Dental College and diagnosed as a case of generalized chronic periodontitis were selected. Total 30sites (2 sites in each patient) requiring the flap surgery were selected and contralateral sites in each patient were randomly allocated into two groups. At baseline plaque index, Modified gingival index were recorded. In group-1 non-eugenol dressing and in group-II light cured periodontal dressing were applied to secure the surgical sites after flap surgery. At day1,2 and 3 pain and discomort was assessed using Numeric Pain Rating Scale.(NPRS) After 7 days patients were recalled for removal of dressing, recording the indices and asked to fill a questionarrie regarding the patient acceptability. Collected data were subjected to statistical analysis and non-significant difference was found in mean NPRS between both groups. After 7 days there was statistically significant better taste, smell and appearance for Barricaid group patients as compared to Coe-pack group. In summation, Barricaid is more preferred dressing over Coe-pack.
