Ninety sites were treated by sinus augmentation therapy using only Bio-Oss (31 sites) or extraction socket and ridge augmentation therapy using only Bio-Oss beneath secured resorbable or titanium-reinforced nonresorbable membranes (59 sites). The results of core biopsies taken at different intervals were discussed in part 1 of this study. A discussion of the use of resorbable versus reinforced nonresorbable membranes as a function of defect morphology is undertaken in part 2. Secured titanium-reinforced membranes were shown to be the most ideal means by which to ensure the final morphology of the regenerated hard tissues.
