This clinical study evaluated the effectiveness of guided tissue regeneration using a resorbable collagen membrane and bone swaging in noncontained infrabony defects by assessing changes in probing pocket depth, probing attachment level, and radiographic bone level after 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years. Postsurgical clinical and radiographic measurements were statistically significantly different from presurgical measurements. The rate of bone fill was positively associated with the baseline depth of the bone defect but not associated with the width. The noncontained infrabony defects treated with this combined regenerative method improved clinically and radiographically.
