“Most patients like the idea of getting a customized solution”
Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland, Dr. Luis Marcelo Calderero | Switzerland

Bone block or GBR? Form-stable membrane or customized titanium scaffold? We discussed vertical ridge augmentation treatment options with two experts: Dr. Isabella Rocchietta, London/ United Kingdom and Prof. Bilal Al-Nawas, Mainz/Germany.

“This technique reduces the difficulties to less than half”
Enea Simonato | Italy, Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland

Many, many techniques are available to gain vertical bone height—including meshes, non-resorbable membranes, bone blocks or osteotomies. Prof. Matteo Chiapasco, Italy, has successfully used most of them. Why did he switch to Yxoss CBR®?

Significantly lower patient morbidity for xenogeneic collagen matrix
Dr. Giulia Cerino | Switzerland

Are xenogeneic matrices valuable alternatives to autologous soft tissue grafts for increasing mucosal thickness, gaining keratinized mucosa width, and reducing patient morbidity? A collaboration between Spanish and US researchers, led by Dr. Jordi Gargallo-Albiol, answered this question with a systematic review and meta-analysis.1

Should we compress biomaterials or not?
Dr. Giulia Cerino | Switzerland, Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland

Does bone regeneration work better in a defect site loosely filled with a bone substitute material, or is compression of the biomaterial beneficial? Prof. Jung-Chul Park, Korea, is among the first researchers to investigate this question in a clinical study. Here he talks with Niklaus Stiefel from Geistlich’s research department about existing evidence and speculation in the field of compressive forces.

“Feedback from students has been tremendously positive”
Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland

The Osteology Foundation offers digital planning tools for researchers on its community platform THE BOX. The “Biostatistics Wizard” and the “Research Wizard” are set to ease the planning of research projects. We discussed the tools with Dr. Claudio Mendes Pannuti, Associate Professor at the University of São Paulo, Brazil.

Enough keratinized tissue even in the long run
Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland

Geistlich Mucograft® together with an apically repositioned flap can create new keratinized tissue of excellent quality and perfect texture and color match. This has been shown by many studies. What matters most for patients, though, is long-term stability. A group of clinicians led by Carlo Maiorana, Italy, investigated this topic.1
