INTRODUCTION New reconstructive and less invasive methods have been searched to optimize bone formation and osseointegration of dental implants in maxillary sinus augmentation. PURPOSE The aim of the presented ovine split-mouth study was to compare bovine bone mineral (BBM) alone and in combination with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) regarding their potential in sinus augmentation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Bilateral sinus floor augmentations were performed in six adult sheep. BBM and MSCs were… CONTINUE READING
