AUTHOR(S): Jesús Israel Rodríguez-Pulido, Delia Eunice Gutiérrez-Rivas, Ana Cristina Chávez-Villegas, Norma Idalia Rodríguez-Franco, Gloria Martínez-Sandoval and María Gabriela Chapa-Arizpe
ABSTRACT:Today alternatives have been sought for surgical periodontal treatment such as the use of bone grafts and enamel matrix derivative, which facilitates regeneration and periodontal healing including a gain in clinical attachment level and reduction of probing depth.
Case report: A 40-year-old female patient with moderate generalized chronic periodontitis, who was treated with debridement flaps in the four quadrants with enamel matrix derivative and autogenous bone graft, obtaining total remission of the periodontal pockets.
Conclusion: The use of enamel matrix derivative in combination with autogenous bone graft is effective to treat containing bone defects. The success of the treatment consists of constant maintenance and periodontal evaluation every three months to avoid recurrence.
