Although the placement of dental and orthopedic implants is now generally a safe, reliable and successful undertaking, the functional outcome is less assured in patients whose bone-healing capacity is compromised. To enhance peri-implant osteogenesis in these individuals, BMP-2 could be locally administered. However, neither a free suspension nor an implant-adsorbed depot of the agent is capable of triggering sustained bone formation. We hypothesize that this end could be achieved by… CONTINUE READING
