Specific microRNA (miRNA) expression profiles have been reported to be predictive of
specific clinical outcomes of dental implants and might be used as biomarkers in implant dentistry
with diagnostic and prognostic purposes. The aim of the present narrative review was to summarize
current knowledge regarding the use of miRNAs in implant dentistry. The authors attempted
to identify all available evidence on the topic and critically appraise it in order to lay the
foundation for the development of further research oriented towards the clinical application of miRNAs
in implant dentistry.
Keywords: miRNA, implant dentistry, osseointegration, peri-implantitis, dental implants, osteogenesis.
