Interviewer : Why should dentists use Wifi-Mesh in GBR?
Wifi-Mesh : Although PTFE and titanium are non-resorbable and require a second surgery, some clinicians report that the d-PTFE completely blocks the penetration of food and bacteria, and thus even if it is exposed to the oral cavity, the d-PTFE membranes exert good guided tissue regeneration (GTR) effects. I (Wifi-Mesh) am made of titanium reinforced d-PTFE. That's why you should use me.
Interviewer : Do the Wifi-Mesh have to be secured with screws or tacks?
Wifi-Mesh : The titanium frame is a grade of titanium that has little or no memory, so it may be formed to the desired shape and will remain in that shape until mechanically altered.
For this reason, screws or tacks are not always necessary if stability can be obtained by simply tucking the membrane 3-5mm subperiosteally.
Interviewer : How long can the membrane stay in place?
Wifi-Mesh : It is recommended that I stays in place for 3-4 weeks. This provides sufficient time for the blood clot to form, graft material to consolidate, and osseous tissue to begin forming under me.
I may be left in place longer than 6 weeks, but it is normally recommended to remove me at 3-4 weeks to allow revascularization of the soft tissue.
Interviewer : Can unused protions of the tatanium reinforced membrane be retaerilized?
Wifi-Mesh : No. These I am for a single use only and may not be sterilized or reused.
Interviewer : What is the expiration date?
Wifi-Mesh : Expiration date of the product is 3 years from manufacturing.

COWELL POSTER COMPETITION
Winner's Clinical Case
Flapless Immediate Implant Placement & 3D Augmentation with rhBMP-2 & Wifi-Mesh
This case presents minimally invasive implant placement and ridge augmentation in the esthetic area.
The extraction, implant placement and bone grafting were performed without incision and flap elevation in order to minimize tissue damage.
Patient : 70 years old, Male
Medical history : N/S
#21 : vertical root fracture & periapical lesion.
#21 atraumatic extraction & cyst removal.
Flapless immediate implant placement.
Flapless 3D augmentation with COWELL®BMP, Allobone & Wifi-Mesh.
Documentation & Procedure
Minimally invasive surgery reduces damage the gingiva and alveolar bone and promotes tissue healing.
rhBMP-2 and Wifi-Mesh can be used effectively for 3D augmentation in large defect.
