Conventional periodontal surgery in conjunction with enamel matrix derivative
Self-contained intrabony defects are narrowed by predominantly intact osseous walls (i.e. 3-wall defects) and are indicated for a regenerative therapy with Straumann® Emdogain® alone.
After raising a full-thickness flap on the buccal and oral aspect of the teeth, granulation tissue is removed and the exposed root surface is freed from plaque and calculus. The remaining smear layer is removed by applying Straumann® PrefGel® for 2 minutes. After thorough rinsing, Straumann® Emdogain® is applied onto the root surface in apico-coronal direction to fully cover the exposed root. To achieve primary wound closure and wound stability, the flap is repositioned tension-free and sutured.
