To evaluate new lateral bone formation and lateral volume augmentation by guided bone regeneration (GBR) in chronic non‐contained bone defects with the use of a non‐resorbable TiO2‐block.
Materials and methods
Three buccal bone defects were created in each hemimandible of eight beagle dogs and allowed to heal for 8 weeks before treatment by GBR. Each hemimandible was randomly allocated to 4‐ or 12‐week healing time after GBR, and three intervention groups were assigned by block randomization: TiO2 b… Show more
