Regenerative therapies for periodontal disease.
Official proceedings from the June 2014 American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) workshop on regenerative therapies for periodontal disease are available. Systematic reviews and consensus reports from "Enhancing Periodontal Health through Regenerative Approaches" appeared as a supplement to the February 2015 Journal of Periodontology. Practical application reports, intended to guide dental professionals in the application of periodontal regeneration in the clinical setting, are available in the February 2015 Clinical Advances in Periodontics.
* Periodontal Soft Tissue Root Coverage Procedures: Managing gingival recession based on current evidence with a primary outcome goal of complete root coverage
* Periodontal Soft Tissue Non-Root Coverage Procedures: Assessing the need for gingival augmentation procedures (non-root coverage) around natural teeth
* Intrabony Defects: Periodontal regenerative strategies for the management of intrabony periodontal defects
* Furcation Defects: How periodontal furcation defects should be managed via periodontal regenerative therapy and what parameters should be used for treatment selection
* Emerging Regenerative Approaches for Periodontal Reconstruction: Can emerging technologies for periodontal regeneration become clinical reality?
The practical application reports are a unique component of the workshop. Each practical application paper describes a specific clinical situation, different approaches that may be considered in its management and how to make treatment decisions based on the provided evidence. Clinical Advances in Periodontics also offers illustrative images and videos that further detail the clinical situation, how it was managed, and its expected treatment outcomes.
