Creating negative space into which bone will grow and calcify remains a challenge to the periodontist and oral surgeon. The presenters will review the latest innovations and barrier membranes available to achieve bone growth in an area of deficient bone volume. First, a bioresorbable and moldable membrane will be presented, followed by the benefits of using titanium mesh. Next, the use of a PLGA mesh in combination with growth factors will be addressed, with cases using a collagen membrane and testing screws to round out the existing options.
