Horizontal or vertical alveolar bone augmentation procedures usually cannot be avoided in edentulous regions. Many studies have shown that GBR is predictable treatment at infrabony defects. However, GBR on extrabony defects still shows a lack of predictability.
This study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the intraoral use of subperiosteally placed self-inflating tissue expanders for subsequent bone augmentation and implant integrity.
This report describes a simple method for soft tissue coverage of a guided bone regeneration (GBR) site using the double rotated palatal sub-epithelial connective tissue graft (RPSCTG) technique for a maxillary anterior defect.
