Introduction: Human placental extract gel contains extract of human placenta and total nitrogen not more than 0.25% w/w. It is natural vitamins, peptides, nucleotides and amino acid gel. It enhances wound healing significantly; increases collagen synthesis and improves tensile strength of healing tissue. It brings about maximum increases in the percent of DNA, total protein and epithelialisation. It also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. Aim and Objective: Clinical and histological evaluation of depigmented gingival epithelium on application of human placental extract gel. Material and Method: 10 healthy patients in the age group of 18-35 yrs. who were indicated for depigmentation procedure were selected for the study. Depigmentation was done with scalpel technique on maxillary and mandibular anterior region. In group A human placental extract gel was applied on the wound and non-eugenol pack was placed whereas group B was covered with non-eugenol pack only. Wound Healing index and Visual Analogue Score was assessed after 7 and 15 days. Epithelisation of wound was assessed by using toluidine blue after 7 days of surgery. Result: Application of human placental extract gel showed a statistically significant improvement clinically and histologically. Conclusion: Application of human placental extract can be a successful approach to protect the raw wound area of depigmented gingiva with better patient comfort and faster healing.
