designated hopeless tooth can be salvaged. Careful patient

driven” regenerative therapy along with a strict periodontal
supportive care program are the keys to success. Today, it

periodontally compromised teeth.
• Identify how lesion morphology effects the choice of
biologic materials available.
• Explain how sequence of therapy and occlusion play a role
in regenerative success.
• Discuss the application of “biologically driven” periodontal
