Aggressive periodontitis is a less prevalent, multifactorial disease which characteristically results rapid destruction of periodontium and early tooth loss. This is more frequently seen in systemically healthy younger age group of patients. Aggressive periodontitis can manifest in localized or generalized form. Generalized aggressive periodontitis is clinically characterized by loss of interproximal attachment of at least three permanent teeth apart from first molars and incisors. Conventional surgical procedure with autologous platelet Gel and systemic antibiotics were used successfully to treat and manage this case of generalized aggressive periodontitis.
