Periodontal resective osseous surgery continues to be a viable modality for the management of periodontitis. This type of periodontal surgery can be considered for the treatment of several periodontal osseous defects including intrabony lesions, furcation involvements, regenerative therapies, and with extractions that may or may not include simultaneous dental implant placement. The challenge is to appropriately utilize available therapeutic approaches for the benefit of our patients.
