Description
Summary:Background and Objectives: Due to their specific morphology, the regeneration of intrabony defects (IBDs) represents one of the greatest challenges for clinicians. Based on the specific properties of a magnesium membrane, a new approach for the surgical treatment of IBD was developed. The surgical procedure was described using a series of three cases. Materials and Methods: The patients were healthy individuals suffering from a severe form of periodontitis associated with IBD. Based on radiographic examination, the patients had interproximal bone loss of at least 4 mm. Due to its good mechanical properties, it was easy to cut and shape the magnesium membrane into three different shapes to treat the specific morphology of each IBD. In accordance with the principles of guided bone regeneration, a bovine xenograft was used to fill the IBD in all cases. Results: After a healing period of 4 to 6 months, successful bone regeneration was confirmed using radiological analysis. The periodontal probing depth (PPD) after healing showed a reduction of 1.66 +/- 0.29 mm. Conclusions: Overall, the use of the different shapes of the magnesium membrane in the treatment of IBD resulted in a satisfactory functional and esthetic outcome.
