    Aim: Banding molars for anchorage may cause periodontal inflammation due to various reasons. To maintain a reasonably good periodontal status during orthodontic treatment, adequate oral hygiene maintenance measures should be followed and monitored. Hence, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of non-surgical periodontal therapy on the first molars banded for fixed orthodontic treatment. Materials and Methods: A double-blinded randomized clinical trial including 35 patients scheduled for fixed orthodontic treatment was recruited, from which, 32 patients with banded first molars were divided into Group A and Group B with 16 patients each. Both the groups underwent routine full-mouth supragingival and subgingival scaling around all banded first molars. Group B also underwent subgingival irrigation with 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate solution around the banded first molars. Treatment for both the groups was performed at the 3rd , 6th , and 9th month. Full-mouth plaque index (PI) and gingival index, probing pocket depth (PPD), and clinical attachment level (CAL) of each banded first molar were recorded at baseline, 6th month, and 12th month. Alveolar crestal bone level around each banded first molar was assessed radiographically at baseline and 12th month. Results: Intragroup comparison showed significant reduction in PI and Group B showed a significant increase in PPD and CAL from 0 day to 12th month. However, intergroup comparison did not show a significant difference in clinical parameters and radiographic crestal bone level. Conclusion: The use of 0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate solution showed no significant benefit on the banded molars as compared to scaling alone.
