Abstract

MARTINEZ LOPEZ, Gustavo Alfonso et al. Periodontal Therapy by Enamel Matrix-derived Protein and Bone Allograft. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.3, pp. 279-286. ISSN 0718-381X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-381X2011000300012.

We describe the periodontal treatment in a bone defect located mesial to the 2.3 tooth, using combination therapy of enamel matrix derivate (EMD) and mineralized bone allograft. We evaluated the affected area and planned their surgical approach to combination therapy. Six months after treatment it showed a significant reduction in probing depth and gain in attachment levels and bone filling of the defect in the radiographic evaluation. These results confirm the effectiveness of the EMD and the mineralized bone allograft in periodontal regenerative therapy.

Keywords : proteins of enamel matrix; allograft bone; periodontal regeneration.
