Guided Tissue Regeneration Using Bioresorbable Membranes: What is the Limit in the Treatment of Combined Periapical and Marginal Lesions?
Milano / Melsen
The maintenance of single teeth may often be of crucial importance for the prognosis of the total dentition. In such c ases, as when a single tooth supports a fixed partial denture, a special effort should be made to maintain that tooth. This study reports the treatment of six such terminal cases. The results of a combination of local and systemic antibiotics and the use of guided tissue regeneration with resorbable membranes and grafting material is demonstrated. After defect debridement and root planing, the defects were filled with Biostitie (Coletica), and Paroguide (Coletica) membranes were placed. The results at reentry demonstrated the efficacy of these treatments, and all six treatments were considered successful. The influence of the individual components used in treatment is discussed.
