 Literature review is devoted to the analysis of scientific findings about extraosseous effects of vitamin D on the immune system of the periodontal tissues. It was found that the biological functions of vitamin D (VD) in the body are diverse.Along with the detailed study of the effect on metabolic processes in bone tissue, VD makes a significant contribution to a large number of processes that ensure the activity of the immune system. In addition, VD increases the production of "endogenous antibiotics". This allows us to consider VD as a therapeutic agent that prevents the development of inflammatory and destructive changes in the periodontal tissues in population with simultaneous slowing of bone loss and preservation of bone mass of the dentofacial system. Currently detected hidden hypovitaminosis VD in almost majority of the population is considered a leading factor in the development of periodontal disease and its prevention and treatment is one of the most important tasks of therapeutic dentistry.

Purpose: to study the effect of vitamin D3 on cytokine activity of macrophages and monocytes of gingival fluid. Material and methods. The examination and treatment of 42 patients with chronic generalized periodontitis at the age of 45-50 years were conducted. Gingival fluid was obtained from the periodontal pockets of patients. Material processed statistically. Results. Colecalciferol efficacy in inflammation and processes of destruction of periodontal tissue was twice higher than using traditional therapy. Resistance anti-inflammatory effect of the drug was maintained for 6 months, which had been confirmed by clinical and laboratory investigations. Conclusion. The use of applications of vitamin D in the treatment of periodontitis may achieve compensatory restoration of immune protection of the oral cavity.
