Aims and Objectives-The aim of the present study was to evaluate the regenerative potential of synthetic nanocrystalline calcium sulphate bone graft (NANOGENTM) in treatment of intrabony defect both clinically and radiographically.

Materials and Methods- Study was conducted in 10 patients with 10 defect sites with probing pocket depth >5mm with radiographs at base line were selected. All the sites with intrabony defects treated with NanogenTM bone graft and follow up was done for 3 months and 6 months respectively. Clinical parameters included in the study are of plaque index, probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), Sulcus bleeding index (SBI). Radiographic parameters include bone fill.

Results-In the present study, the mean clinical attachment loss, plaque index, probing depth index, sulcus bleeding index at baseline was 9.11±1.054, 1.5278±1.9543, 8.44±1.130, 3.7222±.77504 respectively, reduced to 5.7±1.093,.6389±.37731,3.67±.500,1.2222±.75462 respectively at the end of the 3 months.5.00±.707, .4167±.39528, 2.78±.667, .4167±.46771 respectively at the end of the 6 months. The mean bone fill baseline was  9.11 ± 1.054 mm which was reduced to 5.78 ± 1.093 mm at 3 months and reduced to 5.00 ± 0.707 mm at 6 months, showing a bone  fill of 3.933 ± 0.3640 mm by the end of three months and 4.256 ± 0.3678 by the end of six months which were statistically significant (P=0.002).

Conclusion- Present study, evidenced that reduction in probing depths, gain in clinical attachment level and bone fill. Improvement of clinical and radiographic parameters at sites treated with NanogenTM.
