The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of paste type calcium sulfate on the epithelial migration, alveolar bone regeneration, cementum formation and gingival connective tissue attachment in intrabony defect in dogs. These results suggest that the use of paste type calcium sulfate in 3-wall intrabony defects has significant effect on new cementum formation, but doesn't have any significant effect on the prevention of junctional epithelium migration and new bone formation. As a result, the paste type calcium sulfate that is used in this study is suggested to be the material that can have a significant effect on the periodontal healing, if its biocompatibility is improved.
