The evaluation of effectiveness of combination of bone graft, bioresorbable membrane and lasers in the treatment of mandibular grade ii furcation defects in humans: A case series
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sneha Puri
ABSTRACT:The ideal goal of furcation therapy is to retain the tooth by achieving complete closure of the furcation defect thus improving the prognosis of involved tooth. Therefore the aim of the study was to evaluate, the effectiveness of DFDBA in combination with bioresorbable membrane (Biomesh) and LASERS in the treatment of mandibular class II furcation defects in humans. A total of five patients with grade II furcation defects were treated with bioresorbable membrane and bone graft and LASERS. At six months postoperatively, vertical probing pocket depth was reduced from 3.63 mm to 2.3 mm, horizontal probing depth was reduced from3.66 mm to 1.66 mm. The gain in the clinical attachment was observed from 1.66 mm to 3.97mm. Significant improvement in the clinical attachment level, horizontal defect depth vertical probing pocket depth at 6 months postsurgically which showed that the use of Combination of GTR, bone graft and LASER was a viable treatment for the management of grade II Furcation defects.
