Workshop: The web of collagen. How to make predictable augmentation
GBR is a well-documented technique for bone augmentation. It requires a long enough exclusion of unwanted soft tissues from occupying a space where bone is needed. This secluded space should be maintained for the new bone to mature and become stable with minimal resorption. All this may be achieved by using a barrier that will ideally block cell passage and will still allow fluids and nutrients to reach and nourish the regenerated tissue. How to choose augmentation materials so that it is the most predictable based on medical publications? What biomaterials, when what and how. My tips and tricks.
