Role of matrix metalloproteinases in implant dentistry: a diagnostic paradigm in peri-implantitis- a review

Anshul Chugh., Divya Dahiya and Harleen Thukral

As it is well known that the integrity of connective tissues surrounding dental implants is influenced by a levels of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). The purpose of this review was to provide an overall assessment of TIMP-1, MMP-1 and -8 levels as well as collagenase activities during the wound healing process after implant placement and diagnostic role in peri-implantitis.(1,7)
