Nowdays in regenerative therapy most of the time resorbable membranes are used. They can be classified in two groups: Synthetic and Collagen membranes. The advantage of these membranes is that they do not require a second surgery for removal. The procedure is therefore less invasive for the patients and shortens therapeutic times. Complications are minimal in the event of premature exposure when compared with non-resorbable membranes. Because it is not possible to determine membrane resorption rate with accuracy, there is a high risk that the membrane breakdown time will not match with the regeneration time. Furthermore, during the membrane breakdown process, the metabolic
