Background: Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory reaction with loss of supporting bone
in the tissues surrounding an implant. Hence; the present study was undertaken for
assessing the levels of C reactive proteins levels in peri-implantitis patients.
Materials & methods: We calculated any deviation in the levels of CRP in the gingival
crevicular fluid (GCF) of patients with peri-implantitis as compared to healthy normal
subjects. A total of 30 subjects were enrolled in the current research. Out of these 30
subjects, 15 subjects were of confirmed cases of peri-implantitis while the remaining 15
subjects were healthy controls. The GCF of all the patients was collected and sent to
laboratory for precise measurements of CRP levels and their comparison with the
control groups. Based on the lab reports all the data was assimilated on the excel sheets
for further assessment. SPSS software was used for statistical analysis. Chi square test
and student test were used to compare and analyse the variables. P value of less than .05
was considered significant.
Results:Mean GCF levels of C-Reactive proteins among subjects of peri-implantitis
group was 395.5 pg/mL and was found to be significantly higher in comparison to the
subjects of control group (171.6 pg/mL).
Conclusion: Enhanced periodontal inflammation in peri-implantitis patients is
accompanied by a considerable increase in the concentration of CRPs.
