Abstract

The periodontal apparatus requires the body's hyaluronic acid for extracellular matrices to function properly. It supports the processes underpinning the inflammatory and wounds heal processes. Hyaluronic acid is found in periodontium in varying concentrations, with higher concentrations found in non-mineralized structures like gingiva and periodontal ligament and reduced concentrations found in mineralized tissues like cementum and jaw bone. Recent research indicates that hyaluronic acid has the capacity to control periodontal tissue repair and therapy of periodontal disorder. For both deepest periodontium and peripheral gum, hyaluronic acid encourages symptomatic alleviation. The purpose of the current review was to look into the usage of hyaluronic acid in periodontal treatment and the publications that currently support it.
