(rĭ-jĕn′ə-rā′shən)
Regrowth of lost or destroyed parts or organs. Certain lizards, for example, can regenerate their tails if they lose them to a predator, and a number of invertebrate animals, such as starfish, can be cut into several pieces that will each regenerate into a whole new organism. Regeneration is common in plants, where cuttings can grow into a new plant.

PRF could also serve as a resorbable membrane for guided bone regeneration, preventing the migrations of nondesirable cells into bone defects and providing a space that allows the immigration of osteogenic and angiogenic cells.
He explains what the absence of buccal bone matrix and the reduced periodontium of the neighboring dentition led to a unique way of treating the patient: extraction, simultaneous implant placement, and guided bone regeneration. The video is 19 minutes long.
Geistlich Bio-Gide Shape is indicated for the augmentation around implants placed in immediate or delayed extraction sockets; localized ridge augmentation for later implantation; alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment; filling of bone defects after root resection; cystectomy and removal of retained teeth and guided bone regeneration in dehiscence defects.
Several treatment alternatives were then presented to the patient to remove the implant and to perform alveolar preservation through grafting of biomaterials and membranes for guided bone regeneration. However, it was a consensus among the surgeons that any of the cases presented could lead to a change and instability of the vestibular gingival margin, further compromising the esthetic outcome of the case.

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) [4] or guided bone regeneration (GBR) [5] was introduced to regenerate periodontal tissue in the defect site and has been performed with various biomaterials.
The commonly used therapies for bone defects are bone graft substitutes, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and distraction osteogenesis (DO).
