Guided bone regeneration: Biomaterial and surgical techniques for a success aesthetic implant reconstruction
Speaker: Suphachai Suphangul
Originally broadcasted on: 20th August, 2018, 1:00 PM CET Other time zonesThe webinar offers an insight into Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) including its principles, biological basis, clinical procedure and factors affecting GBR as well as proven surgical techniques for a successful outcome.
Bone resorption is a process that follows after patient loses teeth, especially in anterior maxilla. Bone loss is even more when combined with a severe pathology, such as periodontitis or large apical lesions. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) in implant dentistry is essential for the reconstruction of bone volume to support implants and achieve aesthetic results. Characteristic of bone graft materials differ significantly in terms of their biochemical properties, such as resorption rate, volume stability and new bone formation. The webinar will discuss GBR principles, bone substitutes & resorbable membranes as well as surgical techniques for long-term success of implant treatment.
