Background: It should be well understood that the root surface receptiveness to clot formation & initial periodontal wound healing decides the nature of the connective tissue attachments. This study was carried out to assess the initial wound healing events after the application of 20% EDTA-S & Ornidazole gel and assess the formation of fibrin network following blood. Material& Method: Thirty multi-rooted teeth indicated for extraction due to periodontal disease were selected & divided into group A (20%EDTA-S), group B (Ornidazole gel (1% W/V)), group C (7.4pH phosphate buffer saline), group D (20%EDTA-S+ Blood), group E (Ornidazole gel+ Blood), group F (7.4pH) phosphate buffer saline+ Blood). Following root planning, the root surface was cut using diamond disc under copious irrigation. Samples from each group were subjected for root conditioning agent application by passive method. Specimens were then subjected to scanning electron microscopic study. Smear layers removal were analysed by Sampaia et al index. Results: 20%EDTA-S removed the smear layer better than ornidazole gel. Fibrin network formation was seen with specimen treated with 20% EDTA-S + Blood. Conclusion: Use of 20% EDTA-S as root conditioning agent has a beneficial effect on initial wound healing events, which are important for periodontal regenerative therapies.
