The advances in the understanding of the biology of wound healing and periodontal regenerative technologies are applied to improve long-term clinical outcomes of teeth which are periodontally compromised by intrabony or inert-radicular defects.
Periodontal regeneration is selected to:
1. Increase the periodontal attachment of a compromised tooth.
2. Decrease in deep pockets to a more maintainable range.
3. Reduce the vertical and horizontal components of furcation defects.
There are different types of defects: suprabony (horizontal) defects, infrabony (vertical) defects and inter-radicular (furcation) defects. Suprabony defects ...Continue Reading →
