3D-Printed Tissue Regeneration
A note of correction needs to be made at this point. In previous posts describing the Simple Ridge Augmentation, the d-PTFE membrane was firmly attached to the bone and it was assumed the membrane separated into different layers when it was removed. The layer remaining over the bone was of equal toughness to the layer of Teflon that was removed. However, it is now believed that the membrane did not separate, but it was a very tough layer of osteoid that was firmly bound to the membrane. In future cases, histology of this layer will be done to confirm the composition of this membrane-like tissue.
