There are several methods of regenerating the maxillary and mandibular ridge to achieve orthoalveolar form with bone grafting procedures, including block onlay grafting and guided bone regeneration. Traditionally, guided bone regeneration has focused on creating a space for bone regeneration to occur. The use of a formed titanium mesh to regenerate alveolar defects was popularized in the 1980s. With the advent of other adjuncts, such as resorbable membranes, and growth factors, such as recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2, the predictability of the procedure has increased and a wide variety of defects can be restored using this technology.
