Periodontal Regeneration in Stage IV Periodontitis with Interproximal attachment loss and patient’s aesthetic demand

Prof. dr. Giulio Rasperini bespreekt welke regene-ratieve chirurgieën toegepast kunnen worden om de prognose van elementen met ernstig botverlies te verbeteren. Hierbij komt de combinatie van re-generatieve chirurgie met mucogingivale chirurgie in de esthetische zone nadrukkelijk aan bod.

In today’s dentistry the aesthetic demand from the patients has become the main challenge in Periodontology. Besides the obvious functional results is now important to achieve aesthetic success, particularly in the anterior areas, where the expectations of the patients are higher. Understanding the biology of the periodontal wound healing, will lead to respect and protect the healing phase. The New Classification of Periodontal Disease is focused on the interdental Clinical Attachment level. The Aim of Classic Periodontal reconstructive surgical techniques is the regeneration of the infrabony defects or the root coverage in case of gingival recessions. Recently the evolution of the regenerative plastic surgery makes possible to treat simultaneously both. The develop of regenerative clinical and biological concepts, biomaterials and new surgical techniques during the last years, makes possible to answer to the patient’s demands and regenerate the interdental attachment of compromised teeth with predictable long-term results.
