Jay Malmquist: Biologic principles for tissue regeneration that must be considered in treatment planning

A guided pathway to success for regenerative solutions must utilize basic biological principles of wound healing and the inflammatory response. Basic principles of biology must not be violated when attempting to replace tissue defects. These principles such as wound healing...
