Guided tissue regeneration without a stage 2 surgical procedure
In the two cases described, the problems of insufficient bone and insufficient soft tissue in the edentulous ridge were addressed concurrently. Freeze-dried demineralized bone was used to fill the osseous defect. Freeze-dried fascia lata was used to prevent epithelial migration into the defect, act as a barrier, and eliminate a second surgery for membrane removal. This regeneration procedure can provide increased alveolar bone for better implant placement and esthetics.
