Guided Bone Regeneration
This involves restoring or regenerating bone in your jaw when it is not able to support implants otherwise. Post-extraction bone loss is common occurrence which can lead to significant ridge dimensional changes. For long-term success of a dental implant, sometimes it becomes necessary to increase the bone dimensions to accommodate an adequate sized dental implant. This procedure to increase the bone dimensions is called Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR). GBR is a surgical procedure that uses barrier membranes with or without bone grafts or/and bone substitutes.
