BACKGROUND This randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluated the effect of enamel matrix derivative (EMD) on clinical and radiographic parameters of periodontal intrabony defects. METHODS A split-mouth design was used in 16 chronic periodontitis patients who had similar defects (> or =6 mm of probing depth). Both groups underwent scaling and root planing and were acid-etched with EDTA. The test sites received the EMD solution and the controls a placebo. Clinical… CONTINUE READING
