BACKGROUND Although scaling and root planing are considered the therapeutic standard for periodontitis, weakly responding sites often occur. To improve treatment outcome, several chemomechanical treatment concepts have been developed. Recently, the clinical surplus value of a highly concentrated chlorhexidine varnish has been shown when used as an adjunct to sequential scaling and root planing. The aim of this study was to explore the clinical effects of a treatment strategy for chronic… CONTINUE READING
