Abstract

Hyaluronic acid, known also as hyaluronan, is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan in the extracellular matrix. It is produced by most of the cells in the human body, possibly contributing to various fundamental biological processes. This prompts interest in its therapeutic value. Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been used for various treatments owing to its broad range of properties in medical and dental field specially in periodontology. The review gives an overview on the effects of HA on fibroblasts, bone, wound healing, periodontal regeneration, aphthous ulcer/stomatitis and stem cells. Outcomes of including Hyaluronic acid in non-surgical periodontal therapy, drug delivery system and surgical procedures such as root coverage, papilla regeneration, root conditioning, intrabony defects, guided tissue regeneration are rather optimistic. HA has shown astounding potential in treating periimplantitis. Newer frontiers have to be explored to comprehend the other promising properties of HA. Keyword – Hyaluronic Acid, Periodontology.
