Abstract: 

The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of calendula officinal extract as tooth paste in reducing gingival inflammation.
A total of 40 volunteers with established gingivitis (21 males, 19 females, and mean age 28.8±3.28) were included in this prospective, double blind clinical study.
They were randomly assigned to 2 treatment groups: group 1 (n=20), treated with a base dentifrice as control tooth paste; group 2 (n=20), treated with calendula flower extract tooth paste. Subjects were instructed to brush their teeth three times daily by Bass method using their assigned tooth- paste for 4 weeks. Data were collected at baseline and after 2, 3 and 4 weeks including plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI) and bleeding on probing (BoP).
Over a period of 4 weeks, all indices were significantly decreased. A significant reduction in PI was noted for group 2 (1.63 vs. 1.42) throughout the follow-up period, this reduction was seen in GI (1.23 vs.0.66) and BoP (1.29vs.0.64) in the group 2 (calendula extract tooth paste). Brushing with Calendula tooth paste led to significant reduction in PI, GI and BoP.
This treatment could therefore be recommended as an adjunctive procedure to improvement gingival inflammation.
