Injectable Scaffolds for Guided Bone Regeneration

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) has significantly changed implant dentistry in the past 20 years. The lack of bone in the alveolar ridge is a great challenge for the stomatognathic system rehabilitation success. Although the search for the ideal bone substitute has been the focus of a large number of studies, oral surgeons still argue for different allogenic, xenogenic and alloplastic materials for the filling of defects caused by pathologies and traumas. The alveolar ridge reconstruction allows titanium implants installation and rehabilitation of chewing and face esthetics. Despite many successful animal and human trials, the lack of biodegradability became the main concern within the application of xenografts.

Recently much attention has been paid to alloplastic osteoconductive materials which provide an alternative to autologous and xenogenic bone grafts. The non-immunogenic and resorbable materials may provide the basis for complete, predictable and reproducible bone regeneration. The method of choice for a surgeon for the proper alloplastic material may then be its handling and ease of application.

The aim of our current research became the formulation of biodegradable, injectable biomaterial acting as a bone substitute, which supports new tissue ingrowth and might be potentially applied in dental surgery for periodontal and peri-implant bone regeneration.
