Advancements in dental implant technology have been documented and corroborated by their well-established, long-term success rates.1,2  The successful use of dental implants for replacing missing dentition requires adequate available bone in the treatment-planning phase. In clinical scenarios with substantial alveolar bone resorption, multiple surgical techniques for regenerating osseous defects have been suggested in the dental literature.3,4  For osseous wound space maintenance, titanium mesh (TiMe) for guided bone regeneration (GBR) has been used with desirable outcomes.4,5 

TiMe has been successfully used for GBR,5–10  sinus augmentation,11  correction of cleft palate,9,12  and simultaneously with implant placement.13,14  Moreover, TiMe has been used successfully with different types of graft materials.15–19  This includes autogenous bone graft,15,16  xenograft,15  allograft,17  hydroxyapatite,18  and bone morphogenetic proteins.16,19  Several...
