Host  modulatory  therapy  is  a  treatment  concept  that aims  to  reduce  tissue  destruction  and  stabilize  or  even  regenerate  the  periodontium  by  modifying or down regulating destructive aspects of host response and up regulating protective or regenerative responses by means of pharmacological agents. NSAIDS are effective  in  treating  periodontal  diseases  in  adjunct  to  the  nonsurgical  and  surgical  periodontal  therapy. Various destructive enzymes and inflammatory mediators are involved in destruction. These are elevated in case of periodontal destruction. Host modulation aims at bringing these enzymes and mediators to normal level. The majority of periodontal breakdown is caused by host destructive enzymes like matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and inflammatory mediators (prostaglandins, interleukins) that occur as a part of inflammatory response. This review will highlight the role of NSAIDS as host modulating agent.
