A comparison of freeze-dried bone allograft and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft in human periodontal osseous defects



A comparison of freeze-dried bone allograft and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft in human periodontal osseous defects



Journal of Periodontology 60(12): 655-663



This study was conducted to clinically compare freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA) and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA). Twenty-two defects (11 intrapatient pairs) in 9 patients were grafted with either DFDBA or FDBA. Evaluations were based on standardized radiographs, presurgical and postsurgical soft tissue measurements using the cemento-enamel junction as a fixed reference point, and osseous measurements at the time of surgery. Grafted sites were re-entered at a minimum of 6 months following placement. A mean osseous repair of 1.7 mm (59%) occurred with DFDBA and 2.4 mm (66%) with FDBA. A mean clinical attachment gain of 1.7 mm was obtained with DFDBA and 2.0 mm with FDBA. Probing depths decreased a mean of 2.00 mm with both DFDBA and FDBA. These findings reveal no significant differences between the two materials in primarily intraosseous defects when evaluated at a minimum 6 months postsurgery.
