Objectives

Comparison of the treatment outcomes after regenerative periodontal surgery using either an enamel matrix derivative (Emdogain®) or a synthetic bone graft (Ostim®) in wide intrabony defects.

Material and Methods

Twenty-four patients with chronic periodontitis were recruited at a German university dental clinic. All patients showed intrabony defects of at least 4mm depth and 2mm width. Using a microsurgical technique, a modified papilla preservation flap was prepared. After debridement, patients were randomly assigned to Emdogain group (control) or Ostim group (test), figure 2 (a, b). Assessments at baseline and after 6 months included bone sounding, attachment level, probing pocket depth, and bleeding on probing. Early wound healing, adverse effects and patients perceptions were also recorded, figure 1.

Results

Both treatment modalities led to significant clinical improvements. Change in bone fill 6 months after surgery was 1.5mm (±1.7) in the test group and 1.5mm (±1.3) in the control group, respectively. A gain in clinical attachment (RAL) of 1.7mm (±2.1) in the test group and 2.1mm (±1.8) in the control group was observed. A reduction in probing pocket depth (PPD) of 2.9mm (±1.8) in the test group and 3.2mm (±1.4) in the control group was recorded (Tables). One week after surgery, primary closure was maintained in 100% of both the test and control groups, figure 3 (a). No differences in patients' perceptions were found, figure 3 (b).

Conclusions

In both treatment procedures (Emdogain® and Ostim®) regenerative periodontal surgery in deep intrabony defects resulted in significant clinical improvement after 6 months compared to baseline. Further investigation is needed to identify factors influencing individual responses.
