Research Project

The effect of antidepressant, serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor on jaw bone health: a bone histomorphometric study

The major focus of the study is to determine the effects of one major class of antidepressants,
serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), on jawbone structure by bone
histomorphometric study. In our previous clinical study, SNRI type antidepressants shoed negative effects on dental implant health. We will investigate the effect of SNRI on periodontal bone resorption in mice.
