Periodontitis causes the destruction of the alveolar process, which is characterized by clinical attachment loss and the formation of osseous deformities, including furcation involvement and intrabony defects. Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is a surgical procedure that aims to regenerate the periodontal tissue. Objective: To evaluate the success of the periodontal intrabony defect treatment using the allograft and xenograft. Four cases of periodontal intrabony defects with one-wall and two-wall defects were treated through the GTR technique using the allograft (Regen-Oss) and xenograft (Osteoxenon) methods. Periodontal pocket depth (PPD), recession and clinical attachment level (CAL) were assessed before surgery and after six months. This case report describes the management of intrabony defects with the help of surgical interventions, including bone graft materials and the GTR membrane. This combined treatment results in healthy a periodontium with clinical measurement evidence gains in both cases. This case series demonstrates that the removal of etiological factors and utilizing the combined treatment modalities restore the health and function of the tooth. The treatment results of the periodontal intrabony defects using allograft are the same as the treatment results for the periodontal intrabony defects using the xenograft after six months.
