Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the effects of luteolin nanoparticles on the process tooth socket healing in rabbits. Design: This study comprised five rabbits randomly assigned to control animal and experimental animals. Immediately after the extraction of an upper maxillary incisor, the alveolar sockets of experimental animals were treated with topical luteolin while alveolar sockets of the control group remained without treatment. The animals were sacrificed by decapitation with deep anesthesia seven days post tooth extraction. The tooth sockets were sectioned and stained with hematoxylin and eosin stains. Results: Histological evaluation revealed that luteolin treatment induced earlier healing of extracted tooth sockets. Conclusion: These findings suggest that luteolin accelerates the healing process in tooth sockets of rabbits.
