This webinar will discuss biological principles in guided bone regeneration (GBR) and bone grafting. It will then, accordingly, introduce a suitable bone graft material and technique required to achieve predictable aesthetic results.


Correct implant placement in the aesthetic zone and within the prosthetic envelope will, in 97% of the cases, necessitate GBR for better results and good long-term stability. GBR indications in the anterior region could range from fenestrations, dehiscences, thin labial walls, large three or two wall defects and ridge preservation cases. However, in cases with one wall or no wall defects, bone block grafting will be required for better and more predictable results.
