Numerous storage media are advised toconserve the periodontal cells viability.This in vitrostudy was carried out to estimate the efficacy ofaloe Vera, green tea, Histidinetryptophan-Ketoglutarate Solution, and Propolis storage media on viability of periodontal ligament cell.The present study was conducted on 60freshly extracted teeth for orthodontic reasons were randomly categorized into 4 study groups.After centrifugation the cells from supernatant were colored with 0.4% trypan blue for determination of viability. Viable mean periodontal ligament cells in group I was 32.6 cumm, in group II was 26.2 cumm and group III was 17.6 cumm, 34.5 in group-IV. The dissimilarity was considerable (p< 0.05). Post Hoc test between unusualgroups revealed significant dissimilarity in mean periodontal cells (P< 0.05). Propolis, Histidinetryptophan-Ketoglutarate solution and aloe vera had higher pH and osmolality.This study found that propolis showed higher periodontal cells viability followed byHistidinetryptophan-Ketoglutarate solution,aloe vera and least in green tea. Propolis, Histidinetryptophan-Ketoglutarate solution, green tea and aloe vera media can be advocated as a storage media.
