Study Title: "Effect of topical application of coenzyme Q10 on adult periodontitis."
Number of Participants: 10 Male Patients with Periodontitis
Length of Study: 6 Weeks
Type of Study: Controlled Trial
Publication: Molecular Aspects of Medicine
Study Result: "These results suggest that topical application of CoQ10 improves adult periodontitis not only as a sole treatment but also in combination with traditional nonsurgical periodontal therapy."

Coenzyme Q10 has research suggesting benefits in gum disease. In this study, ten male patients with adult periodontitis participated and 30 periodontal pockets were selected for topical application of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to the periodontal pocket.

During the first 3 weeks, the patients did not receive any periodontal therapy except the topical application of CoQ10. After the first 3-week period, root planning and subgingival scaling were performed in all sites. CoQ10 was applied in 20 of the pockets once a week for a period of 6 weeks. Soybean oil was applied to the remaining 10 sites as a control.

Significant improvements in the gingival index, bleeding on probing, and peptidase activity derived from periodontopathic bacteria were observed only at CoQ10 sites.

According to the researchers:

“These results suggest that topical application of CoQ10 improves adult periodontitis not only as a sole treatment but also in combination with traditional nonsurgical periodontal therapy.”
