Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polysaccharide present in the connective tissue of many organisms. It has high molecular weight, is
biocompatible and is found in various body fluids such as: synovial fluid, serum, saliva, gingival crevicular fluid (GCF), etc.
This component has numerous physiological and structural characteristics such as volume maintenance and improvement of tissue resistance, cellular and extracellular interactions, interactions with growth factors, regulation of osmotic pressure, tissue lubrication, bactericidal, fungistatic effects, anti-edematous and osteoconductive. The results that have been obtained show that it is a natural component that can provide numerous advantages.
For all these reasons, hyaluronic acid (HA) is used in different fields of medicine is studied and recently, it was also introduced in the dental field for aesthetic purposes in perioral areas.
