Periodontitis is a chronic and destructive inflammatory disease of the tooth-supporting tissues that is induced by an opportunistic mixed infection. It is highly prevalent, affecting 10-15% of the adult population, and represents the major cause of tooth loss in adults. This book is an encyclopedic collection of data from scientific papers and textbooks that form the foundation for a sound understanding of the chemicals used in surgical periodontal therapy. The topics addressed include treatment with enamel matrix proteins to stimulate periodontal regeneration, the use of guided tissue regeneration barriers, root conditioning, and the role of bone grafts and bone graft substitutes in periodontal therapy. Throughout, the emphasis is on fostering understanding through development of the reader's biological background knowledge. Chemicals in Surgical Periodontal Therapy will be of value to undergraduate and postgraduate dental students, dental hygienists, dental practitioners, and associated professionals.
