Abstract

Background: Management of furcation represent one of the greatest challenges in periodontal therapy due to limited accessibility and complex anatomy of furcalareas.The main aim of regenerative therapy is regeneration of periodontal hard and soft-tissues, including formation of a new attachment apparatus. Various reconstructive procedures have been employed over years to achieve this goal.
Aim:  To evaluate the efficacy of alloplastic bone graft  along with GTR membrane in the management of mandibular grade II furcation defect.
Materials and method: Grade II mandibular furcation defect was treated using bone graft Ostin™ along with bioresorbable collagen GTR membrane Periocol®. Evaluation of clinical parameters, probing depth (PD), clinial attachment level (CAL), radiovisuography was done preoperatively and at three and six months postoperatively.
Results and Conclusion: Six months postoperative measurements demonstrated reduction in probing depths and bone fill in the region of furcation defect. The results observed showed that combined treatment modalities using alloplastic bone graft and GTR membrane are beneficial for the treatment of mandibular grade II furcation defects.
