Combined Treatment of a Large Periodontal Defect Using GTR and DFDBA
Blank, Barry S. / Levy, Alan R.
The regeneration of periodontal structures lost to inflammatory disease is an elusive yet attainable goal of periodontal therapy. This article reports the successful treatment of a large periodontal defect using a combination of demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR). The case presents endodontic and mucogingival complications in the combined GTR osseous graft technique. The combined techniques used in this 27-year-old patient achieved a reduction in probing depth, radiographic evidence of bone fill, and a reduction in clinical mobility.
