Guided Bone Regeneration, Bone Splitting, Interpositional Osteoplastic

  • Andi Setiawan Budihardja


Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is a reliable procedure to guide bone growth at sites with insufficient bone. It can be done together with implant insertion or it can also been done prior to implant placement. Combination of autograft, bone substituting material and membrane is the key factor in this procedure.

In this chapter, we will discuss all the methods to achieve success doing this procedure. Moreover bone splitting technique and interpositional osteoplastic technique to treat horizontal and vertical bone deficiency will also be discussed.
