Özet

Objective: Enamel matrix derivatives (EMD) are the purified form of the acidic extract related to embryonic period that contain amelogenin type proteins and have stimulation effect on cementum, periodontal ligament and bone formation. Autogenous bone graft (ABG) is the only bone graft that is originated intra-or extra-orally from patients and accepted as the gold standard since it contains osteoblasts and osteoprogenitor cells. In this case report, the treatment of two periodontal defects of a 43 year-old systemically healthy male patient with chronic periodontitis was presented.
