How Does Membrane Work?

Think of a canopy that is stretched over supporting poles- the membrane is the canopy or tent in this case. It allows the gum to grow underneath it and cover the bone graft, all the while protecting it. Non-resorbable membrane is usually removed after 3-6 weeks. Once the membrane resorts or is removed, the bone healing continues for another 4-6 months before an implant is placed.
