Clinical case description:
Guided bone regeneration with the open-healing technique.
After augmentation procedure it is rather complicated to get the perfect wound closure in some cases. In this scenario the open healing technique with Geistlich Bio-Gide® membrane should be applied. A great benefit of this technique is keratinized gingiva preservation. Good open healing is possible due to quick transmembrane vascularization, as a result of which the membrane is being rapidly transformed into granulative tissue and gives excellent sealing. Antibiotics for 5 days and gentle treatment of the surgery site are prescribed to the patient in the postoperative period.
