Abstract Synopsis

”CLINICAL AND RADIOGRAPHICAL EVALUATION OF HORIZONTAL RIDGE
AUGMENTATION WITH TWO DIFFERENT RESORBABLE MEMBRANES ”

Assist. Prof. Dr. Bahattin Alper Gültekin
Faculty of Dentistry, Instanbul University, Turkey

ABSTRACT

The aim: To evaluate clinically the results of guided bone regeneration with bovine bone (GBB)
and particulated autogenous bone using two different collagen membranes.
Methods: Particulated autogenous bone in combination with GBB as a composite was applied
for lateral ridge augmentation and covered with two different resorbable membrane (non-cross
link-nc and cross link-c) in two-stage approach to treat deficient ridges in maxilla and mandible.
During implant placement, grafted sites were assessed for the necessity of contour grafting.
Implant survival was also recorded during three years follow-up.
Results: Thirt four implants were placed in 19 patients with 26 grafted sites. Three early
membrane exposure was observed as a complication in c group. Clinically, all grafted sites were
sufficient for implant stability except four sites (3-nc, 1-c groups) were needed to be re-grafted
during implant placement. No implants were lost during three years follow-up.
Conclusions: Horizontal augmentation with resorbable membranes and composite grafts is a
predictable and reliable technique for implant placement. However, clinicians should take
precautions with regard to contour augmentation necessity during second stage surgery
especially when using non-cross link membranes.
