Paper Title:
Application of Glass Reinforced Hydroxyapatite Composite in the Treatment of Human Intrabony Periodontal Angular Defects – Two Case Reports
  Abstract

Bony defects caused by periodontitis are often treated by regenerative therapy using autografts and/or allografts. Alloplasts such as hydroxyapatite or ceramics and bioactive glasses are used as osteoconductive materials that serve as scaffold for new bony ingrowth. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the possible regenerative capability of glass reinforced hydroxyapatite (Bonelike¬)¬¬¬ an osteoconductive synthetic graft in the treatment of human periodontal intrabony angular defects. The material was placed in 2 defects in 2 individual patients and clinical parameters such as probing depth (PD) and clinical attachment level (CAL) have been included. Bone fill was determined using an intra oral periapical radiograph (IOPA) and Autocad Software. After 3 months implantation period, there was an improvement in CAL and reduction in PD along with bone fill was observed.
