Maintaining space in locallized ridge augmentation using guided bone regeneration
Chasioti, Evdokia / Chiang, Tat Fai / Drew, Howard J.
Prosthetic guided implant surgery requires adequate ridge dimensions for proper implant placement. The goal is to develop time efficient techniques, which have low morbidity. The article discusses space maintaining tenting screws, used in conjunction with bone allografts and resorbable barrier membranes, to ensure uneventful guided bone regeneration (GBR) enabling optimal implant positioning.
