Abstract
Periodontitis patients constitute a sizeable portion of cases presenting to daily dental practice. Often these patients present at advanced stages where irreversible defects can be seen, such as severe soft tissue and bone recession, infrabony defects and periodontally unsalvageable teeth deemed for extraction. Current day regenerative procedures have aided the augmentation of such sites, rendering them ready to receive prosthetic replacements to restore function and aesthetics. Among these procedures are guided bone and tissue regeneration (GBR/GTR) and socket preservation, with each utilizing a different material to cater for a specific type of defect. Conventionally, xenografts derived from porcine, bovine, equine sources, etc. and a variety of barrier membranes of similar origin are used for these procedures. This modality however is not free from limitations which range from the risk of rejection to religious issues with the use of materials derived from certain animals to the greater overall cost the patient has to bear. This article therefore aims to explore the efficacy of autologous concentrated growth factors (CGF) as an ‘all-rounder’ multipurpose grafting material through a series of cases depicting its use in different types of defects. CGF has been proven to have osteoinductive as well as osteoconductive properties. It is free from the risk of rejection whilst sparing the need for autogenous donor site surgery and it is more cost effective to the patient among other benefits. Therefore CGF could be a valuable regenerative grafting alternative.
