Background: Periodontal condition is a multifaceted chronic inflammatory condition that necessitates the formation of a pathogenic biofilm, the countenance of which is influenced by a variety of host-dependent factor grounds. The goal of the analyses presented in this article was to establish the outcomes of a huge upsurge in fruit or nut consumption on probing pocket depth. Materials and Methods: After the baseline investigations, the participants were randomly assigned to eat an extra 7kcal/kg body weight/day of additional fruit or nuts by drawing ballots. The ratio of randomization was 1:1. When the entire sums of probing pocket depths of the participants that were a minimum of 4-mm deep were compared amid groups, the difference was statistically significant (P = 0.012). Conclusion: This randomized trial found no evidence that eating a lot of fruits had a deleterious impact on periodontal condition or infection.
