Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A: Scaling group
The experimental group will receive oral hygiene instruction (OHI) and full-mouth scaling using standard rigid Gracey curettes (Hu-Friedy® Manufacturing Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) and ultrasonic instrumentation (EMS piezoelectric system, Electro Medical Systems, Nyon, Switzerland) at week 1-2 and at a second reinforcement visit at 6-8 weeks. Subjects will also be instructed to rinse with 10ml of Chlorhexidine 0.2% mouthrinse twice daily for 30 seconds for the duration of the study.
Procedure: Gingival scaling
Oral hygeine instruction and gingival scaling using hand and ultrsonic instruments.
No Intervention: B: Control group
The control group will receive no periodontal treatment during the study. After completion of the study, these patients will be given oral hygiene instruction and a full mouth scaling.
