Periodontitis is a disease characterized by varying the amount of bone loss and the regeneration of the bone structure, which is lost, is an uphill task. Grafts have been used extensively for regeneration, but each of these materials has its own limitations. No single alternative graft material except autograft provides all three components (osteoconduction, osteoinduction and osteogenic cells) for bone regeneration. The clinical applications for each type of material are dictated by its particular biochemical and structural properties. In situations where the grafting site is compromised, composite grafts consisting of several materials have been used, with a successful outcome. A non-contained defect was treated with de-mineralized bone matrix (Xenograft with Type I collagen granules), hydroxyapatite mixed with peripheral blood (PB) and Type I collagen guided tissue regeneration membrane was used to cover and stabilize the graft. Treatment was done using resorbable membrane and composite graft mixed with PB. Dramatic reduction in pocket depth, with radio opacity and outstanding bone fill was seen at the end of the treatment.
