Background: Gingival inflammation and plaque formation are a major health problem in worldwide. Objective: The objective of the study was to assess the variation of parameters of bleeding and plaque index (PI) in Gingivitis before, during and after intervention with Plantago. Materials and Methods: Thirty gingivitis patients were divided into two groups: control and test groups. Subjects were instructed to use toothpaste twice daily using the bass method up to 6 months. Clinical data were assessed at baseline, 3 months and 6 months which include an analysis of PI, Gingival Index (GI) and bleeding on probing (BOP). Results: Over a period of 6 months, there was a significant reduction in all the clinical parameters which includes GI, PI and BOP in test group with t-test (P = 0.001). i.e., Plantago showed significant effect compared to the control group. Repeated-measures ANOVA also showed a significant difference (P = 0.0001). Conclusion: There is a significant mean reduction in PI, GI and BOP in gingivitis before, during and after homoeopathic treatment with Plantago.
