Introduction: Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) consisting of a pure biomaterial indicate a high and special regenerative performance on both hard and soft tissues and possess many special properties. Guided bone generation (GBR) is one of the most popular methods for bone augmentation at the exact site of implant placement. Several factors are required however for a successful outcome including wound closure, angiogenesis, space maintenance and clot stabilization. During the GBR procedure, the use of Concentrated Growth factors and stem cells CD34 at the osteotomy site as well as the subsequent immersion of the implant in the Liquid Phase Concentrate Growth Factors (LPCGF) aims at providing excellent and fast healing.

Case Report: This case report evaluates and represents the accelerated effect that the use of Concentrated Growth Factors (CGF) and stem cells CD34 combined with Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) via the simultaneous use of alloplastic bone graft and titanium barrier membrane, can have on maxillary bone augmentation following immediate implant placement.

Conclusion: As a result of the use of GBR and Concentrated Growth Factors and stem cells CD34 combined with the simultaneous use of alloplastic bone graft and barrier membrane, accelerated, fast and uneventful regeneration of maxillary bone is succeeded facilitating successful osseointegration with no complications at all.
