The use of a barrier device for bone augmentation is a widely accepted and successful technique. Several devices have been proposed for different clinical situations both resorbable and non resorbable. In the last few years the development of new materials and a better knowledge of soft tREFIID handling have increase the predictability of regeneration. However, guided bone regeneration is not lacking of complications. The aim of this chapter is to provide the clinician with an overview on GBR complications. Starting with an updated bibliography on this REFIID, the most common draw backs will be summarised and their management will be discussed. A classification of complications will be proposed as an instrument for an easier identification of both the problem and the treatment modality. Moreover, the pre-and post-surgical medication protocol and the surgical procedure will be described in details with particular care with those key-points considered essential to reduce the most common complications. © 2016 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
