IMPLANTOLOGY: Immediate implantation with Guided Bone Regeneration - Dr. Teddy

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) was introduced as a therapeutic modality aiming to achieve bone regeneration, via the use of barrier membranes (Dahlin et al. 1988).

GBR with simultaneous implant placement is recommended only if the implant could be placed in an optimal three dimensional position with satisfactory primary stability from the existing natural bone (Chen et al. 2009). However, the success of the procedure does not rely only on implant’s stability, but also on the stability of the grafting material.
