Is the immediate use of guided bone regeneration on exposed dental implant threads beneficial?
ABSTRACT

Thin buccal bone has a risk of thread exposure, and placement of a graft is the mainline of treatment for thread exposure. However, this process takes time as the patient is expected to wait for healing to occur before the implant can be placed. To overcome the waiting period, this study views a different method. This study examines the use of guided bone regeneration on the day of implant placement on buccal bone where thread exposure occurs. This process has the advantage of avoiding the patient to go through multiple operations till receiving the final prosthetic treatment, also saving time and money for both the patient and the practitioner.
