Rhizoma Drynariae is a traditional Chinese medicine utilized to detoxify the kidney and strengthen the bones. It comprises a variety of compounds, including flavonoids, triterpenoids, phenylpropane, lignans, and phenolic acids, which effectively enhance bone metabolism and regulate inflammatory factors. It is currently utilized in the treatment of various bone-related disorders, such as bone fractures and knee osteoarthritis. In recent years, the effectiveness of Rhizoma Drynariae in treating bone-related diseases in the oral cavity has been assessed. The findings have shown that it can promote bone healing in periodontal diseases, accelerate tooth movement during orthodontic treatment, and promote the osseointegration of implant surfaces. This review aims to summarize the biological functions of Rhizoma Drynariae and recent progress in research into its use for the treatment of oral bone-related diseases, thus providing valuable reference for further study and clinical application.

Key words: Rhizoma Drynariae, periodontitis, tooth movement, implant surface treatment
