Electrospun synthesizes nanometer or micrometer fibers used by polymer solutions or melts under high-voltage electric fields. Electrospun fibers have the advantages of good biocompatibility, large specific surface area, high porosity, easy modification and low cost, they are widely used in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, wound dressing, medical textile materials and drug delivery systems. Electrospun fibres also have good application prospects as periodontal drug delivery systems. Progress in electrospun fibres as periodontal drug delivery systems is summarized.

Key words: electrospun fibres, periodontal disease, drug delivery, bioactive molecule
