Treatment of Furcation Defects with DFDBA Combined with GTR: Human Histologic Evaluation of a Case
Harris, Randall J.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether regeneration is possible in human furcation defects. Three molars with Class II furcation involvement were included in this study. A notch was placed in calculus in the furcation to serve as a reference point for histologic evaluation. The defects were treated with a demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft combined with a bioabsorbable membrane. At 6 months postoperative, the teeth were extracted with a small piece of tissue from the furcation area. The samples were then processed for histologic evaluation. Regeneration was found in 2 of the 3 samples. This study demonstrated that regeneration is possible in human furcation defects.
