This book addresses dental students, general dentists and periodontists who intend to learn about the use of regenerative procedures in periodontology. Its main goal is to provide the clinician with an overview on biological and clinical concepts related to regenerative modalities in various types of periodontal defects.
It presents basic knowledge of the anatomy and histology of the periodontium, basic biological principles involved in periodontal wound healing along with clinically relevant concepts based on comprehensive biological research of the last decades related to the use of guided tissue regeneration, bone grafts/bone substitutes, enamel matrix protein derivative, root surface biomodifcation, growth factors and various types of combination approaches employed in regenerative periodontal therapy. Emphasis is given to detailed presentation of clinical cases and surgical techniques related to the use of various regenerative approaches.
Clinically important issues, such as indications and contraindications, choice of appropriate flap design, surgical instruments and suturing materials intend to give the clinician relevant information in the daily practice.
