Session II: Strategic Regeneration: Biomaterial Selection and Surgical Techniques


SonicWeld: Ultrasonically Fabricated Barriers for Enhanced Outcomes in Guided Bone Regeneration


Kevin Murphy
Thursday, June 6
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Grand Ballroom (Salon G-K)

KLS Martin has developed a unique bioresorbable guided bone regeneration barrier that can be molded into any desired three-dimensional form. By combining thermoplastic and ultrasonic energies, these barriers have been successfully used to create the proper environment for both large lateral and vertical ridge augmentations for situations previously treated with block grafting or distraction. This course will outline the basic science, clinical techniques, and outcomes of the Sonic- Weld technique.
