Efficacy of reconstruction of alveolar bone using an alloplastic hydroxyapatite tricalcium phosphate graft under biodegradable chambers.


Our aim was to test the efficacy of a synthetic alloplastic graft under biodegradable chambers to reconstruct a horizontal bony deficiency as an alternative to autogenous, allogeneic, or xenogenic grafts. We used 11 New Zealand white rabbits. On each rabbit's mandible one test sample (grafted chamber) was placed on the (right or left) body, while its… (More)
