Guided Tissue Regeneration on Aggressive Periodontitis (LJP)
17 year old African American female with localized aggressive periodontitis affecting her permanent 1st molars. #3 presents with 9mm pocket depth. The area was treated with open flap debridement and grafting with Bond Apetite. Immediate post graft and 1 year follow up radiographs are attached. Clinically, the area probes 5mm. Not perfect, but certainly improved.
I have used Bond Apetite for ridge augmentations and socket grafting, but this was my first time using it in a periodontal defect. I believe the fact that the material bonds together offers an advantage over particulate grafts which may exfoliate during healing.
