Langer in 1993 proposed tissue engineering as a possible technique for regenerating lost periodontal tissues. This field builds on the interface between materials science and biocompatibility, and integrates cells, natural or synthetic scaffolds, and specific signals to create new tissues. We used soft tissue harboring the PDLSCs adherent to the root of an extracted impacted wisdom tooth along with its cementum and dentin shavings using gelatin sponge as scaffold to restore the periodontal intrabony defect of another molar of the same patient. The current approach resulted in improvement in clinical parameters and radiographic improvement in periodontal intrabony defect. SAI-PRT has emerged as a constructive avenue in treatment of periodontal osseous defects. Moreover the clinical feasibility, success and cost effectiveness over currently available techniques are encouraging.
