Vertical Ridge Augmentation with GBR

le 14/12/2023 • Liliana Da Silva

Vertical Ridge Augmentation with GBR

Vertical bone augmentation presents as one of the greatest biologic defiance of bone regeneration
in oral surgery and implant dentistry.
Guided Bone Regeneration is a very technique-sensitive but proven for such bone augmentation.
When the right indications, materials and techniques are used the desired bone augmentation can
be achieved with good long-term results.
Precise surgical flap advancement and closure techniques as well as postoperative management
are some of the critical details to prevent bone graft complications and predictably achieve success.
This presentation will update the clinician about vertical ridge augmentation in extreme vertical
defects using polytetrafluoroethylene (Ptfe) membranes.
