Periodontitis is a health condition that involves inflammation of the periodontium, the supporting tissues, bones and ligaments around the teeth. In severe cases, the alveolar bone in the jaw area can become degraded and, without treatment, eventually lead to the loss of teeth. Periodontitis is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. Regeneration of these tissues has become the most vital aim of periodontal surgery. For this situation, bone greft, syntetic materials and growth factors have been researching for years. Recently, there is a new material found and called ‘Concentrated Growth Factor’ (CGF). The current study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of CGF, with open flap debridement (OFD), in treatment of infrabony defects in chronic periodontitis (CP) in adolescents. Twenty patients with single defects were categorized into two equal treatments groups: group l: OFD alone, group ll: OFD with CGF. Clinical parameters like site Plaque Index (PI), Gingival Index (GI), Gingival Bleeding Index (GBI), Probing Pocket Depth (PPD), Relative Attachment Levels (RAL) were recorded at baseline, before surgery and 6 months post-operative. Percentage radiographic intra-bony defect depth reduction was evaluated using computer-aided software at baseline and 6th month. OFD with CGF group showed significant PD and RAL gain than OFD alone group. Group ll sites showed a significantly greater percentage radiographic defect depth reduction (48.11±0.019%) as comparated to Group l (11.21±0.082%) at sixth month. Adolescence are critical periods for the development of bones. Periodontal treatment is an important step in preventing alveolar bone loss. OFD+CGF group showed greater improvement in clinical parameters with greater percentage radiographic defect depth reduction as compared to OFD alone group in treatment of infrabony defect in chronic periodontitis in adolescents.
