Customized bone regeneration with Yxoss CBR®
Dr. Marcus Seiler | Germany

Yxoss CBR® is a customized titanium grid structure designed for the regeneration of bone defects – based on a patient’s CBCT or CT data. It stabilizes the graft in the optimal position and can be easily removed later.

Implant placement with GBR
Prof. Daniel Buser | Switzerland

Circumferential bone anchorage in the alveolar ridge is key to the long-term success of an implant. Therefore, bone defects at the implant site have to be corrected by means of GBR.

Autogenous bone plus biomaterials
Prof. Matteo Chiapasco | Italy

Autogenous bone grafts stimulate new bone formation but are prone to resorption. Biomaterials are merely osteoconductive but maintain the volume. So, how about combinations of the two materials?
