AbstractBackground: Tongue movement and saliva flow has some degree of potential to clean debris
from facial, lingual, interproximal spaces and occlusal pits but is less effective in complete
removal of plaque.Materials and Methods: The present study was having twenty subjects in
the age group of 20-46 years, selected from the undergraduate clinic, Periodontics of the
Subharti Dental College, Meerut. The subjects displayed good general health and were
diagnosed with adult periodontitis.
Results: There was a significant reduction in OHI scores and pocket depths from baseline
and 3 and 6 months.
Conclusion: Toothbrushing and maintenance of oral hygiene has a positive effect on the
microbiota and leads to improvements in clinical parameters.
