The levels of the enzyme alkaline phosphatase have proved to be a good indicator gingival health and disease. In this study, their levels were compared around healthy and diseased implants. The enzyme was taken from peri-implant sulcular fluid of healthy and diseased implants and was estimated. The results indicate an increase in the enzyme levels around diseased implants when compared to the healthy implants.
