Conventional treatment for the management of 2- to 3-walled intrabony defects is the use of allograft or alloplasts. Autogenous grafts are the gold standard because of their osteogenic potential. Mandibular tori are an ideal site for harvesting bone because their excision causes no structural, esthetic, or functional compromise to the patient. This case report describes the use of an autogenous graft obtained from a mandibular torus. The graft was utilized, in particulate form, to fill an intrabony defect at the mandibular right central incisor. The mandibular torus provided sufficient graft material and eliminated the need for a second surgical site. A followup at 1 year revealed reduction in clinical attachment loss and complete resolution of tooth mobility.
