Abstract

Aim

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of biphasic calcium phosphate (ossifi®) and bioactive glass in the treatment of periodontal osseous defects clinically and radiographically and compare them with open-flap debridement.

Methods and Materials

A total of 45 sites in two test groups (test 1, ossifi; test 2, bioactive glass) and a control group (open-flap debridement), in 35 patients, were selected in this study conducted at the department of Periodontics and Oral Implantology, D.A.V.(C) Dental College, Yamuna Nagar, India. Clinical parameters like plaque index, gingival index, pocket depth, and clinical attachment level were recorded at the baseline and at three months and six months postoperatively. Radiological parameters like the amount of defect resolution and the percentage of defect resolution were recorded at the baseline and at three months and six months postoperatively.

Results

Statistically significant difference in mean values of the plaque index, gingival index, pocket depth reduction, clinical attachment level, gain amount of defect resolution, and percentage of defect resolution were observed in all the groups at subsequent time periods.

Conclusion

Both test groups showed significant improvement over the control in both the clinical and radiological parameters.

Clinical Significance

A greater percentage of defect resolution was noticed in test 1 as compared to test 2, followed by the control.
