Aim: The present study was undertaken for assessing the C-reactive proteins (CRP) levels and IL-6 levels in patients with peri-implantitis. Materials and Methods: A total of 20 patients with confirmed clinical and radiographic diagnosis of peri-implantitis were included in the present study. Another set of 20 subjects who reported for routine health check-up were included as healthy controls. All the subjects were recalled in the morning and fasting (minimum of 12 h) venous blood samples were obtained. Plain vials were used for collecting the venous blood which was sent to the laboratory for biochemical analysis. In the laboratory, levels of CRP were assessed by means of latex enhanced nephelometric method, and interleukin 6 (IL-6) was assessed by means of Elisa kit. Results: Mean levels of CRPs in patients of the peri-implantitis group and the control group was found to be 0.795 mg/dL and 0.294 mg/dL respectively. Mean IL-6 levels among the patients of the peri-implantitis group and the control group was found to be 12.178 pg/ml and 6.458 pg/ml respectively. While analyzing statistically, significant results were obtained. Conclusion: Enhanced periodontal inflammation in peri-implantitis patients is accompanied by a considerable increase in the concentration of CRPs and IL-6.
