Periodontal disease causes bone loss around the teeth. Bacteria that form bacterial plaque release toxins that destroy this bone, which leads to dental mobility and risk of tooth loss.
Currently, we have biomaterials that stimulate the regeneration of lost bone around the roots, such as collagen membranes or proteins derived from the enamel matrix.
A 45-year-old patient in the periodontal maintenance phase. The piece 36 appeared to have a bone defect and a periodontal pocket 10 mm deep. With the conventional periodontal disinfection treatment this problem had not been solved and occasionally the gingiva festered. We proposed to treat it by means of a microsurgery with the help of a biomaterial and we regenerated the lost bone around this molar. It is now 6 years since the treatment and the patient has a completely healthy smile and the molar stays without mobility.
