Periodontal Regeneration: Myth or Reality

Periodontal disease when left untreated can lead to destruction of the supporting structures of the teeth. Procedures that eliminate existing bacteria and regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting the teeth can help to reduce pocket depths and reverse some of the damage caused by the progression of periodontal disease. Such regenerative procedures have also been applied to treat bone loss around dental implants. How is this achieved, and how predictable is this form of treatment? How can this be applied clinically to benefit our patients?
