Regenerative periodontal surgical procedures attempt to restore lost periodontal structure and functional attachment through the regeneration of cementum, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone. Although meticulous debridement using surgical instrumentation reduces the bacterial burden, it fails to kill the periopathogens. To overcome this shortcoming, the development of alternative adjunctive or exclusive antibacterial therapeutic strategies, therefore, becomes important in the evolution of methods to control microbial growth in the oral cavity. The following case report explores the use of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy as an adjunct to regenerative periodontal therapy for the management of intrabony defects which was evaluated over a period of 6 months.
