Abstract

The management of teeth periodontally compromised by deep intraosseous lesions has been a major therapeutic challenge for many years. For this purpose, various surgical techniques and biomaterials have been investigated in an attempt to reconstruct lost or damaged periodontal tissues. Thus, reconstruction of periodontal tissues may be achieved by the application of barrier membranes, grafts, biological agents, and their combinations. However, although reconstructive procedures are widely accepted as safe and effective, there is a high variability in treatment outcomes. Recently, minimally invasive surgical and non-surgical treatment options have been introduced to minimize tissue trauma, decrease patient morbidity and simplify the treatment procedure.     

The goal of this presentation is to update clinicians on the recent advances in biomaterials and surgical techniques in reconstructive periodontal procedures.
