Soft tissue augmentation without using grafts from the palate – the new collagen matrix Geistlich Fibro-Gide® makes it possible.
Objective treatment outcomes are measurable and comparable. However, it is also worth taking the patient’s subjective measures into account. This is the goal of “patient-reported outcomes.”
Should the extraction socket be sealed with a soft-tissue punch graft or with a collagen matrix? The matrix has some advantages over the autologous punch.
Immediate implantation, spontaneous healing or Ridge Preservation – these are the available options after a tooth has been extracted. Which option is the best when?
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) is a highly multidisciplinary field. Integrative approaches are developed to overcome today's limitations in augmentation procedures.
The sandwich technique facilitates soft-tissue management and allows experienced surgeons to achieve good results in patients with greater vertical bone deficiencies.
Do large defects need large transplants? Not always. A new technique cleverly merges autologous tissue and collagen matrix. An interview with Prof. Istvan Urban.
