Regenerative treatment of periodontally damaged teeth is a demanding task.
In addition to the appropriate flap technique and application of the regenerative materials, it requires control of the bacterial infection that caused the periodontitis.
A pre- and post-operative hygiene phase and patient motivation are therefore basic requirements for therapeutic success.
Aims of regenerative treatment
- Restoration of the complete tooth attachment apparatus with bone, cementum, and ligament
- Prevention of long junctional epithelial down growth as a risk factor for later, renewed periodontitis
- Long-term tooth retention
- Positive aesthetic appearance
