Background: The study aim to assess the periodontal status of individuals and the presence of red complex microorganisms (RCM) such as Treponema denticola (T.d), Porphyromonas gingivalis (P.g) and Tannerella forsythia (T.f) in the subgingival tissues of periodontitis subjects before and after the application of 4% mangostana gel (MGA) as an adjunct to scaling and root planing.
Methods: 25 sextants (MGA group) were treated with scaling and root planing (SRP) and subgingival application of mangostana gel used as local drug delivery (LDD). 25 sextants (Placebo group) were treated with SRP and placebo gel. Clinical parameters were recorded and the presence of RCM were assessed at baseline and at 3rd month.
Statistical Analysis: The mean probing pocket depth, clinical attachment level, bleeding index, plaque index were assessed at 0th day and 3rd month and compared between the groups using one way analysis of co-variance (ANCOVA). Intra-group comparison (MGA) for the presence of T.d, from baseline to 3rd month and inter-group comparison (MGA & Placebo) at 3rd month was done using Fischer exact test. In both MGA and placebo group, the presence of T.d in subgingival tissues was compared with the clinical parameters at 3rd month using student's t-test. The p ≤ 0.05 was chosen as a level of significance.

Active Comparator: Garcinia Mangostana
The constituents of mangostana containing gel were prepared under the following proportions: Mangostana powder - 4gm, Gelatin - 12gm, Glycerin (wetting agent) - 0.2ml, Peppermint oil (flavouring agent) - 0.1ml, sodium saccharine (sweetening agent) - 0.1ml and purified water q.s 100ml.
Drug: Garcinia mangostana
The properties of mangostana includes antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant, anticancer, anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic, aromatase inhibitory properties
Other Name: Mangosteen
Placebo Comparator: Placebo gel
The placebo gel was prepared with Gelatin - 12gm, Glycerin (wetting agent) - 0.2ml, Peppermint oil (flavouring agent) - 0.1ml, sodium saccharine (sweetening agent) - 0.1ml and purified water q.s 100ml excluding the active ingredient mangostana powder - 4 mg and maintaining same physical properties such as color and taste.
Drug: Placebo gel
The properties of placebo includes antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant, anticancer, anti-proliferative, pro-apoptotic, aromatase inhibitory properties

- Clinical efficacy of 4% mangostana in chronic periodontitis patients from baseline to 3 months. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
probing pocket depth was measured using Williams periodontal probe with the measurement of 0 to 9 mm and the criteria is as follows - 2 to 4 mm for gingivitis, 4 to 5 mm for slight periodontitis, 6 to 7 mm for moderate periodontitis and > 7 mm for advanced periodontal disease.
Clinical attachment level was measured from cemento-enamel junction to the base of the pocket using Williams periodontal probe with the criteria of 1 to 2 mm for slight periodontitis, 3 to 4 mm for moderate periodontits and greater or equal to 5 mm for severe periodontitis.
- Microbiological efficacy of 4% mangostana in chronic periodontitis patients from baseline to 3 months. [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Red complex microorganisms such as Porphyromonas gingivalis, Tannerella forsythia and Treponema denticola were analysed using 16S rRNA gene amplification by polymerase chain reaction for their absence as '0' and presence as '1'.
