Background: To enhance and possibly overcome limits in the biological potential, several research approaches have assessed the possible benefits of GTR modulation by root surface conditioning agents.
Objective: A Comparison of bioresorbable membrane alone or in Combination with tetracycline root conditioning in treating intrabony defects.
Material & Methods: Study design: A case-control study. Setting: Department of Periodontics, Subharti Dental College, Meerut Uttar Pradesh, India. Participants: 20 patients Sampling: Random sampling. Statistical Analysis: Data entry and statistical analysis were carried out using SPSS 10. Unpaired student “t” test was applied
Results: On comparing the values of pocket depth (PD) and depth of defect area (INFRA I) Group A and Group B patients at baseline and 6 months, a decrease in the PD and INFRA I after the treatment were observed. Intergroup comparison of the treatment outcomes on PD and INFRA I revealed no statistically significant difference between the two groups.
Conclusion: It was concluded that combining GTR technique with the TTC-HCl root conditioning does not improve the results in terms of clinical and radiographic outcomes.
