The aim of the study was to make comparative evaluation of adjunctive use of locally delivered tetracycline fiber (Actisite) to scaling and root planning and to compare it with SRP alone in the treatment of chronic periodontitis. Fifteen patients, aged 30-55 years having chronic periodontitis with periodontal pockets 5-8 mm were selected for the study. Two sites for each subject comprising site A and site B with a total of 30 sites. Clinical parameters like Plaque index, Gingival index, Sulcus bleeding index, Probing pocket depth, Clinical attachment level were recorded at baseline, 10th day, 45th day and 60th day post operatively. The result of the study showed that the use of tetracycline fibers along with scaling and root planning does not offer any advantage once scaling and root planing alone excepting only for a marginal benefit in clinical parameter and gingival inflammation. The effect of mechanical debridement seems to have greater effect on the clinical outcome thus over shadowing the antimicrobial activity of tetracycline
