AIM: The guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedure allows the regeneration of bone in implant surgery. A variety of GBR procedures to provide the bony-support for implant placement have been described and a variety of devices to perform this procedures have been used. The authors have carried out a retrospective study on the use of ostheosynthesis plates, screws, xenogenic bone grafting material and resorbable barriers for implant and preimplant surgery.
METHODS: Fourteen partially edentulous patients were treated by a single surgeon in a private dental clinic in Italy. Patients age ranged between 28 and 52 years old. Every patients was treated with GBR technique performed with the use of ostheosynthesis plate and screws, xenogenic bone grafting material and resorbable barriers in staged or simultaneous implant placement.
RESULTS:Twenty-one implants were placed and no-one failed, all planned prostheses were delivered. In all the cases a complete bone regeneration was obtained.
CONCLUSION: The outcomes of the study allow to state that the GBR technique performed with ostheosynthesis plates, screws, xenogenic graft and resorbable barriers is a safe alternative to the others well estabilished GBR procedure.
