Guided bone regeneration: into the world of cells


'Cell-to-cell communication: Guided bone regeneration', is a new animation movie from the Quintessence Publishing Group, supported by Geistlich Biomaterials. 

Invisible to the human eye, guided bone regeneration takes place in the microcosm of the cells. What tasks are performed by osteoblasts, osteoclasts, pericytes, thrombocytes, fibroblasts and all the other cells? How do they communicate amongst themselves?

This new animation movie shows the co-ordinated actions of the numerous players, central to the GBR process. Geistlich Biomaterials were instrumental in supporting this GBR movie and are pleased to provide access to this complimentary short version via You Tube
