Abstract

Defects were created in the tooth‐supporting bone of six beagle dogs. Biodegradable tricalcium phosphate was compared to cancellous marrow as a treatment method. The findings indicated that ankylosis and resorption of the tooth can occur when using marrow. The ceramic‐filled defects healed slower; but the material itself was well tolerated by the tissues, initiated new bone formation, filled in the defect, and has good potential for the treatment of advanced periodontitis.
