Clinical Trial Summary

Ziziphus honey can improve bone healing at extracted tooth sockets in humans by increasing salivary levels of bone markers, OPN and BMP-2.

Clinical Trial Description

objectives of study: To study the effects of ziziphus honey on bone healing of extracted tooth socket in humans by comparing 1) Levels of BMP-2 and OPN in experimental and control groups at different intervals and 2) By radiographically measuring RBD of extraction sockets in experimental and control groups. Aim of study: Post extraction ridge resorption is a major concern for future tooth prosthesis or implant placement. Honey can possibly help to improve bone healing and minimize ridge resorption after extractions. Materials and Methods: Randomized controlled trial with simple random sampling of healthy individuals will be done. Total number of 30 participants will be equally divided into experimental group and control group. After tooth extractions in both groups, ziziphus honey will be injected into extracted sockets of experimental group while control group will be left as it is. Levels of BMP-2 and OPN will be tested in saliva through ELISA technique at day 0, 3 and 7 of tooth extraction and RBD will be measured on periapical radiographs at day 3, 21 and 40 in both groups. Keywords: Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2), Osteopontin (OPN), Relative bone density (RBD), Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). ;
