OBJECTIVE New approaches to enhance vertical bone regeneration in clinically relevant implant models are needed. Therefore, we analyzed the impact of recombinant human bone morphogenic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) on the healing of large buccal alveolar defects during osseointegration of transgingivally inserted implants. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-four dental implants were inserted transgingivally in the mandibles of 6 labrador/golden retriever cross-bred dogs. Before implantation, a standardized buccal… CONTINUE READING
