GUIDED BONE REGENERATION

In most cases, guided bone regeneration surgeries, also called GBR or augmentation techniques, broaden the possibilities of resorting to implantation and as such are of key importance in implantology.  The knowledge of guided bone regeneration techniques makes it possible to treat missing teeth difficult to replace due to the co-existing bone atrophy in the alveolar process of either the maxilla or the mandible.
