Guided Tissue Regeneration

Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
Room: Chelan 2


Guided bone/guided tissue regeneration, GBR/GTR, strategies are widely used in dental/craniofacial repair/reconstruction to enhance bone healing/formation for implant therapies. GBR/GTR membranes work primarily by acting as a barrier to prevent invasion of soft tissue into regenerating bone grafted sites. While current membranes act primarily in a passive manner, new and developing membranes are providing adjunctive bioactive activities to stimulate healing, bone formation and or infection. Because of the success of GBR/GTR membranes in dental/craniofacial applications, they are being explored for use in large orthopedic defects, neuro-regeneration, and in other soft tissue repair strategies. Session will provide an overview of the clinical use and performance of GBR/GTR membranes in dental/craniofacial repair as well as focus on advances in GBR/GTR membrane strategies in tissue healing and regeneration.
