Periodontal Regeneration: Comparison
Please note this is a comparison between Version 2 by Nora Tang and Version 1 by Leonardo Mancini.

Periodontal regeneration is a technique that aims to regenerate the damaged tissue around periodontally compromised teeth. The regenerative process aims to use scaffolds, cells, and growth factors to enhance biological activity.
