The effect of local and systemic statin use as an adjunct to non-surgical and surgical periodontal therapy —A systematic review and meta-analysis

ConclusionsSignificant additional clinical and radiographic improvements are obtained after local, but not systemic, statin use as an adjunct to SRP in deep pockets associated with intrabony defects and seemingly with furcation defects; intrasurgical statin application seems similarly beneficial. Confirmation of these results, and especially of the effect size, from other research groups is warranted.
