A basic tenet of successful osseointegration is that the implant resides in a sufficient quality and quantity of bone to ensure bone contact and thus stabilization. A prospective, randomized controlled preclinical trial was conducted to evaluate the bone-to-implant contact (BIC) when placing implants in bone regenerated by 3 different combinations of(More)
A preclinical study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of 2 different topical formulations of recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB) to promote early osseointegration and enhanced bone-to-implant contact (BIC) for dental implants placed in an edentulous ridge. Six female beagle dogs were divided into 3 groups. The control(More)

The purpose of this case report was to analyze the outcome of alveolar ridge reconstruction procedures with composite alloplastic biomaterial (biphasic calcium phosphate composed of 30% hydroxyapatite and 70% Β-tricalcium phosphate) for the treatment of large alveolar ridge defects. The clinical and histologic findings demonstrated that this alloplastic(More)
