Should we extract the tooth and replace it with a dental implant?
Regenerative surgical procedures have long been considered a suitable method for restoring lost periodontal structure and functional attachment. But how did the concept develop? And what can we expect in the future?
Every dentist aims to improve and restore proper function and esthetics in patients affected by periodontitis. Accordingly, it has been argued that periodontally compromised teeth should be treated for as long as possible and should only be extracted when periodontal and endodontic treatments are no longer possible.
