As demonstrated in this article, the concept and clinical application of guided tissue and bone regeneration have been investigated exhaustively in the animal model and in human studies. Evidence clearly exists to support the successful clinical use of this technique for promotion of new bone formation in an osseous defect, although its mechanism remains somewhat undefined. Continued research into the techniques themselves, further applications, use of modifying factors, and the quest for a superior membrane are anticipated.
