BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of the present study was to measure interleukin-1beta concentrations and neutrophil elastase activity in gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) during experimental gingivitis in humans. MATERIAL AND METHODS 12 healthy young men participated. After prophylaxis, they performed optimal hygiene to reach plaque and gingivitis indices of or approaching zero. All oral hygiene measures were then ceased for a period of 18 days. The Quigley-Hein plaque index (PLI) and Saxer & Mühlemann… CONTINUE READING
