Bone Regeneration in the Jaws

Current research is focused on modification of techniques of bone regeneration, investigating the biological qualities of various bone substitute used
to augment atrophic sites in the jaws and stabilizing collagen membrane used in guided bone regeneration procedures.

  • Implant stability – histologic study.
  • Use of synthetic materials in periodontal defects.
  • Evaluation of novel implants – histologic study
  • Grafting extraction sockets
  • Stabilization of resorbable collagen membranes
