A split-mouth longitudinal study was conducted out in order to compare and evaluate the efficacy of mechanical debridement and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the nonsurgical management of chronic periodontitis. Materials and methods In all, 22 people with a confirmed diagnosis of chronic generalised periodontitis participated in the research. After determining each patient's gingival index, periodontal pocket depth, and clinical attachment loss, a complete mouth cleaning and root planing was performed on each individual. The top right and left quadrants of the bodies of each subject served as sample locations for the investigation. In order to treat these split-mouth sites, ozonated water irrigation was performed on the upper right quadrant of each patient using a 22-gauge needle, and photodynamic therapy (PDT) was performed on the upper left quadrant of each patient. PDT involved the irrigation of the sulcus with indocyanine green dye (0.05 mg/ml), followed by the application of low-level diode laser light at 0.5 W and 810 nm (AMD Picasso) through Clinical indicators that were recorded before the research were reevaluated at the end of the second and sixth months of the study, respectively.
