Background : Recent studies suggest that metformin (MF) is osteogenic. Aim: The assessment of the effect of a muco-adhesive, multiple layer film of MF in intra-pocket application in non-surgical management of moderate –severe chronic periodontitis. Materials and Methods: The study included 20 patients with moderate –severe chronic periodontitis. Scaling and root planing (SRP) were performed in all patients. Selected sites were randomly assigned to different treatment modalities. Group I: 10… Expand
