Abstract Placement of implant fixtures in an ideal position for restoration is not often possible using standard protocol, because most patients lack sufficient bone in the alveolar process. To facilitate ideal restorative placement of implant fixtures, principles of guided tissue regeneration can be used to provide adequate bone and prevent dehiscence and fenestration of the implant. Four cases of such treatment are presented.
