Each participant was instructed to practice daily oral hygiene procedure using modified bass method with the assigned toothbrush. Clinical parameters were recorded at baseline, 1, 3 and 6 months and the data was subjected to “t-test” & “p-test” using SPSS (version 15.0) software. At baseline, mean plaque index and gingival bleeding index of group II were slightly higher as compared to that of Group-I yet the difference between two groups was satistically insignificant (p>0.05). 1st and 3rd month follow-up did not present significant difference in the clinical parameters.
