Subantral sinus augmentation is often necessary to permit placement of endosseous implants. Recent efforts to improve wound healing have focused on autogenous sources of bioactive mediators, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which offer the potential to enhance the biological activity of bone replacement grafts. The purpose of this randomized, single-blinded, controlled study was to compare bone formation after subantral maxillary sinus augmentation with freeze-dried bone allograft (FDBA… CONTINUE READING
