The cases presented in this report illustrate: (1) the potential for a fluoride-releasing resin-ionomer (Geristore) to be used as a sealant between an e-PTFE membrane (Gore-Tex) and tooth structure during a guided tissue regeneration, and (2) the potential for a resin-ionomer to function as a barrier in guided tissue regeneration. In the first case, the e-PTFE membrane was trimmed to only cover the area to be treated prior to its placement over the lesion. The resin-ionomer was mixed following manufacturers specifications, placed on four corners of the pre-trimmed membrane and luted into place. In the second case, the resin-ionomer alone was placed over the lesion, teased off the lesion with a curette while in a semi-set state, and luted into place with freshly mixed material after it set completely. These cases provide preliminary clinical evidence that a resin-ionomer may be used subgingivally for guided tissue regeneration.
