CLINICAL CASE

Application of NOVAMag® membrane and cerabone® for treating a single intrabony defect

The patient in this case report was a 70-year-old woman with no prior history of health problems. The patient had a combined vertical and horizontal IBD in the area between the distal root surface of tooth 23 and the mesial root surface of tooth 24, whereas the loss of interdental tissue was easily detected clinically. After flap elevation, the radiographic findings were confirmed. Bovine xenograft was used to fill the intrabony defect, and the site was covered with NOVAMag® membrane, which had been cut into a T-shape to fit the defect. The flap was then repositioned and sutured with single sutures. After 6 months, radiological examination showed satisfactory bone gain.
