Abstract

The placement of one-stage endasseaus dental implants and the achievement af success rates greater than or equal to two-stage implants present a unique challenge far combining regeneration and implant placement. This report describes the evolution of a technique in which membrane barrier technology is combined with implant placement This allows healing to occur with minimal inftommation araund the onestage implant and provides an extended, complication-free healing perlad for both osseous regeneration and implant integration. Present membrane technoiagy requires a secand surgical pracedure to remove the membrane, but future resorbable membranes, when ovaiiable, should make regeneration araund onestage impiants a reiativeiy simple clinical procedure.
