Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare and evaluate the efficacy of 3% Ginkgo biloba (Gb) gel with 1% chlorhexidine (CHX) gel as an adjunct to ultrasonic scaling (US) in patients having moderate-to-severe gingivitis. Materials and Methods: Forty subjects with moderate-to-severe gingivitis were selected and randomly divided into two groups: test (Gb) and control (CHX). The test subjects received 3% Gb gel along with US and the control subjects received 1% CHX along with US. Clinical parameters such as plaque index, gingival index, and papillary bleeding index were recorded at baseline (before US), 15th-day, and 30th-day posttreatment. Results: Both the groups presented significant reductions in the clinical parameters at 30th-day post-US when compared within the group. However, Gb gel group showed better results compared to CHX in intergroup comparison on 30th day. Conclusion: Gb gel shows similar results when compared to CHX as an adjunct to US in cases of gingivitis suggesting that it can be used as a herbal alternative to CHX.
