BACKGROUND Surgery utilizing an enamel matrix protein derivative (EMD) or guided tissue regeneration (GTR) has been shown to promote periodontal regeneration. AIM To evaluate the 10-year results following treatment with EMD, GTR, EMD+GTR, and open flap debridement (OFD). MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-eight patients out of an initial group of 56 participants were treated with one of the four modalities. Results were evaluated before surgery, at 1 year, and at 10 years.
