This book presents an overview of the use of contemporary regenerative techniques in the treatment of periodontal osseous and soft tissue defects. Each chapter is designed to cover an important aspect related to periodontal regeneration, including an understanding of periodontium anatomy, biologic wound healing, regenerative materials, surgical techniques, and clinical applications. By focusing on the most relevant regenerative materials and procedures, the authors present effective treatment paradigms that incorporate biologic concepts and biomaterial enhancements with predictable surgical techniques. Well-documented clinical cases emphasize the management of critical treatment factors as well as the use of proven techniques that can optimize treatment outcomes. A must-read for any practitioner with an interest in the rationale, possibilities, and limitations of regenerative procedures of periodontal therapy.
