A multilayered graphene hydrogel (MGH) membrane is used as an excellent barrier membrane for guided bone regeneration. The unique multilayered nanostructure of the MGH membrane results in improved material properties, which benefits protein adsorption, cell adhesion, and apatite deposition, and allows higher quality and fast bone regeneration.
