GBR – a Classic heading into the Future

15 international specialists discussed the future of Guided Bone Regeneration with representatives of Geistlich Biomaterials at the Regeneration Leaders’ Meeting on 14 and 15 June 2016: “GBR – How old-fashioned is it really?” An overview film.

Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) has revolutionized dental medicine - routine practice is now unthinkable without sinus lift, horizontal or vertical bone augmentation, ridge preservation and the many variants and innovations. "In over 90 percent of cases, GBR works so well by now that there are no improvements to be made", says one statement at the Regeneration Leaders' Meeting in Zurich, which many participants were able to agree with.

By developing Geistlich Bio-Gide® and Geistlich Bio-Oss®, Geistlich Biomaterials has made a significant contribution to the establishment of GBR. In the anniversary year, under the motto "20+30 = 1000", the question of the future is certainly an issue. So, is there still any room at all for improvement? Is there a clinical need to develop the technique further, even to develop as far as a 100 percent guarantee of success? In our video recording, you will see how the participants took stock.
