Novel Approach of GBR for Implant Placement: Open Barrier Membrane Technique Utilizing Signaling Molecules and Allografts

  8:45 - 9:15 am

This novel approach of guided bone for implant placement is a minimally invasive technique with no periosteal releasing incision and no primary closure of the barrier membrane. A combined GBR approach that includes particulate bone and bio-compatible materials is predictable, convenient, and minimally invasive and can result in sufficient bone augmentation for implant placement.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the biology of wound healing and the role of cells, scaffolds, and signaling molecules in determining clinical outcomes; 2) discuss current options on graft selection for ridge augmentation; and 3) discuss how this technique can be implemented in your practice.
