Predictable soft and hard tissue regeneration and maintenance, so crucial to the clinical success of each case is highly dependent on the appropriate selection of material as well as the technique and approach. With abundance of newer materials on the market, the clinician is given the task to marry the right material and technique, often biased by opinions, and without much true scientific guidance.
