Titanium barriers have been used for guided bone regeneration in preclinical and preliminary clinical reports as a possible alternative to bone grafting. In two cases with lateral bone defects, rigid titanium barriers were used to provide a secluded space in conjunction with bone substitutes. Sufficient lateral bone volume was generated for implant… CONTINUE READING
