    Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of 1.0% chlorhexidine (CHX) gel versus 0.12% CHX rinse in reducing the incidence of dry socket. Materials and Methods: This clinical study was a randomized, prospective, and clinical trial with parallel groups in a single center. The study involved the treatment of 60 patients of both genders between the age group of 18 and 65 years old, from September 2017 to January 2018. Results: A total of 60 patients underwent intervention with each group comprising 30 patients. This study shows that the application of bioadhesive 1.0% CHX gel to the post-operative wound after extraction reduces the incidence of the dry socket when compared with the application of CHX rinse. Conclusion: The present study concluded that the topical application of 1.0% CHX gel postoperatively shows a significant reduction in the incidence of dry socket.
