Alveolar bone resorption can result from tooth loss, periodontal disease, or trauma. Guided tissue regeneration is used in an attempt to exclude tissues devoid of osteogenic potential from a bone defect or cavity and promote new bone growth to replace missing osseous structure. Many types of barrier membranes have been used, but none have been found to be ideal for every clinical situation. Macroporous membranes, such as expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, require primary closure and a second… CONTINUE READING
