BACKGROUND A recent report documented a tissue engineering approach to simultaneously augment hard and soft tissues for implant site preparation. The technique used freeze-dried mineralized bone allograft (FDBA), recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor mixture with a titanium-reinforced membrane, and a pediculated connective tissue graft (PCTG) to simultaneously augment the hard and soft tissue. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of this technique in delayed and… CONTINUE READING
