Successful treatment of periodontitis is considered to be dependent on early diagnosis, targeted antimicrobial therapy and modifying the tissue architecture that is conducive to long-term maintenance. Osseous defects present a challenge in periodontal practice and successful treatment depends primarily on selection of the correct technique and materials.
This clinical study presents the cases treated with different techniques and with same materials. The periodontal osseous defect was filled up with a equine based bone graft substitute Collagen granules Bio-Gen (Bioteck®, Italy) and covered with a resorbable collagen membrane (Bioteck® Italy). The results in all the cases discussed here are satisfactory and have shown long-term stability emphasizing the importance of selection of technique and material.
Use of equine based xenograft with pericardial originated GTR bioresorbable membrane showed significant improved outcomes in treating periodontitis.
