AbstractBackground: Peri-implant disease is a chronic inflammatory condition caused by bacterial plaque contamination. The present study was conducted to assess serum C- reactive level in patients with peri-implantitis.
Materials & Methods: 40 radiographically and clinically confirmed patients with peri- implantitis and equal number of controls was enrolled. Patients were divided into 2 groups. Group I was patients with peri- implantitis and group II were healthy control. Serum C reactive proteins levels were detected with autoanalyser.
Results: There were 25 males and 15 females in group I and in group II, 22 males and 28 females. The mean serum C- reactive protein level in group I was 412.6 pg/ml and in group II was 194.2 pg/ml. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: There was increased serum C reactive level in patients with peri- implantitis.
