AIM: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of a regenerative procedure based on supra-crestal soft tissue preservation in association with combined autogenous bone (AB) graft/enamel matrix derivative (EMD) application in the treatment of deep periodontal intra-osseous defects. METHODS: Thirteen consecutively treated patients, seven females and six males, aged 30-65 years, three smokers, were included. A total of 15 deep, one- to two-wall intra-osseous defects were selected. Immediately before surgery and 6 months after surgery, pocket probing depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), and gingival recession (REC) were recorded. RESULTS: PPD amounted to 9.4+/-1.8 mm before surgery, and decreased to 4.7+/-1.2 mm post-surgery (p<0.0000). CAL varied from 10.5+/-2.0 mm pre-surgery to 6.2+/-1.7 mm post-surgery (p<0.0000), with CAL gain averaging 4.3+/-1.4 mm. Fourteen (93.3%) defects presented CAL gain >/=3 mm. REC change was 0.4+/-0.7 mm. CONCLUSIONS: Results from the present study indicated that a regenerative procedure based on supra-crestal soft tissue preservation and combined AB/EMD treatment leads to a clinically and statistically significant improvement of soft tissue conditions of deep periodontal intra-osseous defects.

Abstract

AIM: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of a regenerative procedure based on supra-crestal soft tissue preservation in association with combined autogenous bone (AB) graft/enamel matrix derivative (EMD) application in the treatment of deep periodontal intra-osseous defects. METHODS: Thirteen consecutively treated patients, seven females and six males, aged 30-65 years, three smokers, were included. A total of 15 deep, one- to two-wall intra-osseous defects were selected. Immediately before surgery and 6 months after surgery, pocket probing depth (PPD), clinical attachment level (CAL), and gingival recession (REC) were recorded. RESULTS: PPD amounted to 9.4+/-1.8 mm before surgery, and decreased to 4.7+/-1.2 mm post-surgery (p<0.0000). CAL varied from 10.5+/-2.0 mm pre-surgery to 6.2+/-1.7 mm post-surgery (p<0.0000), with CAL gain averaging 4.3+/-1.4 mm. Fourteen (93.3%) defects presented CAL gain >/=3 mm. REC change was 0.4+/-0.7 mm. CONCLUSIONS: Results from the present study indicated that a regenerative procedure based on supra-crestal soft tissue preservation and combined AB/EMD treatment leads to a clinically and statistically significant improvement of soft tissue conditions of deep periodontal intra-osseous defects.
