Grade II furcation defect has a great potential for regeneration. Attempts have been made to regenerate lost periodontium in furcation defects through variety of approaches. A total of 22 patients with Grade II furcation defect were examined. The patients were sequentially grouped into three groups namely, (Group A) subepithelial connective tissue graft as a barrier membrane, (Group B) bovine bone graft material Bio-OssTM and (Group C) with the combination of the two. The treatment modalities show that there was a strong improvement in the resolution of the grade II furcation defects. The reduction in horizontal furcation defect measurement was 20.63% for group A. The change was found to be moderate (p=0.023*). The % change is 20.97% for group B and it is statistically significance (p = 0.001**). The % change was 20.78% in Group C with a good statistical significance (p=0.003**). Complete obliteration of the defect clinically and radio-graphically was observed for grade II furcation defect. Thus, the effect of sub-epithelial connective tissue graft with hydroxyl-apatite for furcation treatment in Indians is documented in this report.
