Osseointegration [direct bone-implant contact (BIC)] is a primary goal following installation of endosseous dental implants. Such bone contact provides stability for the dental implant over time. The objective of this study was to evaluate bone formation and BIC at long-term, functionally loaded, endosseous dental implants placed into bone induced by recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in an absorbable collagen sponge (ACS) carrier. Mandibular, saddle-type, alveolar ridge… CONTINUE READING
