This article reports the successful treatment of a large periodontal defect using a combination of demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR). The case presents endodontic and mucogingival complications in the combined GTR osseous graft technique. The combined techniques used in this 27-year-old patient achieved a reduction in probing depth, radiographic evidence of bone fill, and a reduction in clinical mobility.
