Objectives To evaluate the efficacy of PLGA, an alloplastic biomaterial obtained by polimerization of polylactic and polyglycolic acid in intrabony periodontal defects. Methods PPD, CAL and Rx images were evaluated with the Student's t test to compare test sites and control sites (treated with traditional flap surgery) in the same patient. Results The study allowed to assess the osteoconductive ability of the material used, the effective healing of intrabony defects associated with radiographically documented bone regrowth, and absence of complications. Conclusions Regenerative techniques in periodontology allow to reduce the depth of the periodontal pocket, thus leading to the complete recovery of supporting tissues. In order to obtain successful and predictable results, clinicians must choose very carefully among the various treatment options available, making the most of any characteristics of the biomaterial chosen.

Abstract

Objectives To evaluate the efficacy of PLGA, an alloplastic biomaterial obtained by polimerization of polylactic and polyglycolic acid in intrabony periodontal defects. Methods PPD, CAL and Rx images were evaluated with the Student's t test to compare test sites and control sites (treated with traditional flap surgery) in the same patient. Results The study allowed to assess the osteoconductive ability of the material used, the effective healing of intrabony defects associated with radiographically documented bone regrowth, and absence of complications. Conclusions Regenerative techniques in periodontology allow to reduce the depth of the periodontal pocket, thus leading to the complete recovery of supporting tissues. In order to obtain successful and predictable results, clinicians must choose very carefully among the various treatment options available, making the most of any characteristics of the biomaterial chosen.
