Four clinical centers, using the Brånemark System and with personnel trained in the use of Gore-Tex Augmentation Material (GTAM), participated in a prospective study of 45 patients 18 to 83 years of age. A total of 55 implants were placed with membranes because of local bony defects (fenestration or dehiscence). Dehiscence and fenestration defects were evaluated as one group. The mean initial defect height was 4.7 mm (SD = 3.0). After healing, the remaining defect height was reduced to 1.1 mm… CONTINUE READING
