Abstract

Gingivitis is an inflammatory response of the gingival tissues to the metabolic products and pathogenic
toxins of bacteria found in oral gingiva. Clinical indicators are redness, edema and swelling of the local
gingival tissue.
Study comprised of 35 participants of age between 25-45 years who were clinically examined and divided
into three group gingivitis of female, gingivitis of male and healthy control, These were classified according
to the values of gingival index score.
Q. infectoria were applied topically to participants were suffering from gingivitis, In addition Strips of pH
indicator paper were also used to diagnose the effect of Q. infectoria on the pH of the oral pathophysiology.
Diagnoses and follow-up product were performed in a dental clinic under the supervision of a dentist by
used gingival index for two weeks.
The progress of gingival measured in female group in terms of mean, standard deviation and variance were
0.7,0.135 and 0.018 before treatment while 0.3, 0.125 and 0.015 after treatment however for male group
were 0.678, 0.189 and 0.03 before treatment while 0.291, 0.132 and 0.01 after treatment.
We observed the great efficacy of the herb product against gingivitis In addition, Significant changes in
the PH of the mouth were also observed after using Q. infectoria, as it was found that PH value is close to
neutral and within the normal range for all patients.
According to results were due to the fact that Q. infectoria contain large amounts of tannin and other
compounds that constrict vessels and tissues and are effective as an anti-inflammatory for retention of gum
tissue there for we recommend used for treatment.
