Abstract

Deep bone defects are caused by the progression of periodontal disease, which breaks down bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. In this case, a 37-year-old male patient presented a deep bone defect with advanced periodontal disease around an upper canine. Medical-grade calcium sulfate was mixed with demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft and used to repair and regenerate the defect. Analysis of the radiographs at the 5-month time point showed the bone had completely regenerated.
