Among the most commonly used procedures to obtain the regeneration of peri-implant tissues there are reconstructive techniques called Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR), respectively. In both cases, the use of appropriate membranes that act as a mechanical barrier between the different cell populations that make up hard and soft tissues is crucial. The membranes therefore prevent the proliferation of undesired cell elements within the grafted site and stabilize the bone grafts by limiting micro-movements that would instead promote the formation of fibrous tissue. The case described entails using an equine bone substitute in conjunction with a cortical bone membrane enzymatically deantigenated.
