BACKGROUND Multiple exposures to enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD) during periodontal therapy have been shown to be safe for the patient. The purpose of this study was to clinically determine if an altered course of wound healing would occur after multiple exposures to EMD in the treatment of intrabony defects. A secondary aim was to assess the… CONTINUE READING
