Lifting of the sinus floor is a standard procedure for bony augmentation that enables dental implantation. Although cultivated skin and mucosal grafts are often used in plastic and maxillofacial surgery, tissue-engineered bone has not achieved the same success. We present the clinical results of dental implants placed after the insertion of periosteum-derived, tissue-engineered bone grafts in sinus lifts. Periosteal cells were isolated from biopsy specimens of periosteum, resuspended and… CONTINUE READING
