Abstract

  Guided bone regeneration procedure allows successful implant placement by regenerating lost bone at desired site. The versatile procedure not only stabilize the blood clot and bone graft in defect but also prevents the migration of epithelial and connective tissue cells into the region thus allows migration and proliferation of osteogenic cells to form new bone. Although, GBR procedure is technique sensitive, predictable outcomes could be obtained by understanding and utilization of proper surgical technique and postoperative patient compliance. Studies have indicated more complications while achieving vertical ridge augmentation than horizontal ridge augmentation. Complications can be either surgical or postoperative. The aim of this article is to provide an insight into the procedure and complications associated with GBR and guidelines for preventing and managing these clinical situations.
