Maxillary sinus floor augmentation with autogenous bone has become a widely accepted procedure in implant dentistry. The use of osteoconductive bone substitutes in this indication is controversial, since their use can lead to a prolonged healing time, inhomogenous ossification, foreign body reaction, migration of particles and low bone-implant contact (BIC). The purpose of this study was to examine whether the combination of an osteoinductive protein (recombinant human osteogenic protein-1… CONTINUE READING
