Abstract

Guided bone regeneration is an effective alternative for the reconstruction of atrophic ridges. Adequate flap management together with immobilization of the barrier membrane and graft are crucial to ensure successful regenerative radiographic and clinical outcomes. Moreover, tension-free flap closure should be accomplished to guarantee to maximize the effectiveness of guided bone regeneration.
