Aim: 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.
Objectives: 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 restorable pericardial derived equine based Bio-collagen GTR 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.
Conclusion: Use of equine based xenograft with pericardial originated GTR bioresorbable membrane showed significant improved outcomes in treating periodontitis.
