The ability to regenerate hard and soft tissues is a fundamental aspect of modern periodontal and implant therapy. Advances in regenerative techniques and biomaterials in recent years now allow for predictable regeneration of periodontal defects and stable dimensional gains in extraction sockets and edentulous ridges. This lecture will highlight the properties of various bone grafting and barrier membranes in the context of selecting the ideal regenerative material for various clinical scenarios. The lecture will also focus on key surgical and post surgical factors that increase the success rate of regenerative and augmentation procedures.
