Accumulating evidence suggests that dental treatment is associated with systemic inflammation. We aimed to preliminarily study the impact of third molar removal on biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress. Ten consecutive subjects underwent the removal of third molars under local anaesthesia and provided blood samples before and 1, 7 and 60 days following therapy assessed for high-sensitivity serum concentrations of C-Reactive Protein (CRP), fibrinogen, white cell counts and a number of measures of oxidative stress (MDA, LOOH and FRAP). One week inflammatory response ensued with acute increases after 24 h of CRP (P<0.01), Fibrinogen (P<0.05) and white cell counts (P<0.05).

Abstract

Accumulating evidence suggests that dental treatment is associated with systemic inflammation. We aimed to preliminarily study the impact of third molar removal on biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress. Ten consecutive subjects underwent the removal of third molars under local anaesthesia and provided blood samples before and 1, 7 and 60 days following therapy assessed for high-sensitivity serum concentrations of C-Reactive Protein (CRP), fibrinogen, white cell counts and a number of measures of oxidative stress (MDA, LOOH and FRAP). One week inflammatory response ensued with acute increases after 24 h of CRP (P<0.01), Fibrinogen (P<0.05) and white cell counts (P<0.05). Third molar removal may represent a useful model to investigate inflammation in humans
