Abstract

Aim

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate clinical and radiological healing effects after treatment of class II furcation defects using bioresorbable periodontal mesh barriers.

Materials and methods

The patients for the following study were selected from Outpatient, Department of Periodontics, College of Dental Sciences, Davanagere, Karnataka.

Inclusion criteria:

1. Patients with age group between 18 and 60 years.

2. Patients who were nonsmokers.

3. Patients who had not undergone any type of periodontal therapy 6 months prior to initial examination.

4. Patients diagnosed as advanced periodontitis having mandibular grade II furcation involvement (Glickman 1953) clinically and radiologically.

Exclusion criteria:

1. Patients who required antibiotic prophylaxis.

2. Patients allergic to tetracycline and/ or chlorhexidine.

3. Pregnant and lactating mother.

4. Patient showing unacceptable oral hygiene during presurgical (phase 1) therapy.

Results

In this study clinical parameters were compared and attempt was made to compare the results radiographically too, with the limitations, the present study showed that the use of resorbable periodontal mesh barriers for GTR therapy at class II furcations resulted in reduction of furcation involvement.

Conclusion

Therefore it appears that a patient with class II furcations involvement benefits from barrier treatment, because results are superior to conventional treatment without barriers.

Clinical significance

The present study was taken up to evaluate the clinical effects of GTR therapy of class II furcations using bioresorbable periodontal mesh barriers.
