Impact of Periodontal Pocket Depth on the Efficiency of Surgical Treatment of Generalized Periodontitis


generalized periodontitis
platelet-rich fibrin
hydroxyapatite kergap


The paper is aimed at increasing the efficiency of surgical treatment by using a combination of platelet-rich fibrin, a synthetic hydroxyapatite Kergap, minimizing the body’s response to operative wound, and improving diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in surgical treatment of stage II-III generalized periodontitis.

The objective of the research was to study the efficiency of using the combination of platelet-rich fibrin, synthetic hydroxyapatite Kergap, magnesium preparation in comprehensive treatment of stage II-III generalized periodontitis at various stages and in different depths of the periodontal pockets.

Materials and Methods. The efficiency of surgical treatment was evaluated using clinical (periodontal pocket depth, attachment level, gingival bleeding, tooth mobility) and laboratory methods (X-ray, computed tomography) 3, 6, and 12 months after surgical treatment.

Results. The clinical picture was characterized by positive changes in all clinical indicators 3, 6 and 12 months after treatment. The best results by clinical and laboratory findings were obtained in case of an average pocket depth of 5-7 mm.

Conclusions. There was demonstrated a high clinical efficiency of using the combination of platelet-rich fibrin, synthetic hydroxyapatite Kergap and magnesium preparation in comprehensive treatment of stage II-III generalized periodontitis.
