Download PDF 20 Years of Guided Bone Regeneration in Implant Dentistry
The use of barrier membranes for the regeneration of bone defects has notably changed implant dentistry in the beyond twenty years. This precept, regularly referred to as guided bone regeneration (GBR or GBR technique), become first described in 1959 by Hurley and co-workers for experimental spinal fusion remedy. within the Sixties, the research teams of Bassett and Boyne tested microporous cellulose acetate laboratory filters (Millipore) for the restoration of cortical defects in long bones and for osseous facial reconstruction, respectively.
The authors used these filters to set up a appropriate surroundings for osteogenesis via with the exception of fibrous connective tissue cells from bone defects. however, these pioneering research did no longer at once lead to a wide scientific application of barrier membranes in sufferers. The scientific capability of the membrane approach was now not recognized till the early Nineteen Eighties, while the studies team of Karring and Nyman systematically examined barrier membranes in various experimental and scientific studies for periodontal regeneration. a few years later, barrier membrane strategies had been examined in experimental studies on bone regeneration. based totally on promising effects in these research, medical checking out of membranes started in implant sufferers in the past due Nineteen Eighties.
