Guided bone regeneration at a fenestrated dental implant: histologic assessment of a case report.

Abstract

Guided tissue regeneration has been shown to establish new attachment in periodontal defects and to facilitate hard tissue repair around dental implants. This case report describes a patient treated with guided tissue regeneration adjacent to an endosseous dental implant. Histologic analysis showed the regenerated tissue to be mature, cortical bone possessing a high level of mineralization.
