AbstractPeriodontitis is a chronic inflammatory multifactorial disease that causes destruction to periodontium. Periodontal therapy plays a vital role in restoring lost periodontal structure. Lack of periodontal treatment ultimately leads to progression of periodontal destruction; thus, tooth mobility and loss of tooth occurs. Replacement of missing teeth by dental implant is considered as gold standard treatment method over the past decades. At present, Osseointegrated implants are the most widely used with various short comings. To overcome this, development of tissue engineered periodontal ligament cells surrounding the implant (Ligaplants) has now become the new therapeutic and promising tool in field of implant dentistry. Ligaplants improves the biological performance and increase the life of dental prosthesis, hence considered as new dimension in the field of implant dentistry. This review article highlights the existing and scientific literature available on ligaplants.
