PURPOSE Osteogenic alveolar distraction remains in an experimental stage. The present study aimed to compare histologic and histomorphometric results with 2 different consolidation periods (4 and 8 weeks) to determine which period obtained better bone quality after distraction with a prototype alveolar distractor.
