Clinical Case Report on Treatment of Generalized Aggressive Periodontitis: 5-Year Follow-up
Hu, Kai-Fang / Ho, Ya-Ping / Ho, Kun-Yen / Wu, Yi-Min / Wang, Wen-Chen / Chou, Yu-Hsiang
Generalized aggressive periodontitis (GAgP) is a distinct type of periodontal disease associated with considerably more rapid periodontal tissue destruction than chronic periodontitis. This study presents the 5-year follow-up of a patient with GAgP. A 29-year-old man reported experiencing increasing gingival recession. He was treated using cause-related therapy, provisional splints, and flap surgery combined with allograft grafting and was followed up for 5 years. This case study shows that elimination of infectious microorganisms and meticulous long-term maintenance provide an effective treatment modality for aggressive periodontitis cases. This treatment modality can restore the masticatory function and provide the GAgP patient with improved quality of life.
