Impact of smoking on guided tissue regeneration using a biocomposite poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid/sub-micron size hydroxyapatite with a rubber dam as an alternative barrier.

Abstract

The purpose of our study was to critically evaluate the results obtained from a guided tissue regeneration technique after 12 months using a bocomposite poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid/sub-micron size hydroxyapatite (PLGA/HA) with a rubber dam as a barrier in smoking and non-smoking patients. We selected 36 patients (18 current smokers and 18 non-smokers… (More)
