New Challenge: Regeneration of the Interdental Periodontal Tissue Attachment
In today’s dentistry, the aesthetic demand from the patients has become the main challenge in Periodontology. Besides the obvious functional results that are important to achieve aesthetic success, particularly in the anterior areas, 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 and gingival recessions.
- Development of regenerative clinical and biological concepts, biomaterials and new surgical techniques during the last years making it possible to answer to the patient’s demands and regenerate the interdental attachment of compromised teeth with predictable long-term results.
- The sequence of treatment, when other dental fields are involved, such as orthodontics, prosthodontics, is a key factor to success.
