Implant survival following vertical and horizontal bone augmentation with a synthetic biphasic calcium phosphate: long-term follow-up datas
Stricker, Andres / Voss, Pit / Gutwald, Ralf / Metzger, Marc / Sauerbier, Sebastian
Autogenous bone is considered to be the current gold standard for bone augmentation; however, only limited amounts of autogenous bone can be harvested at the implantation site. Furthermore this procedure may lead to morbidity problems. As an alternative, a commercially available synthetic bone graft substitute comprising porous biphasic calcium phosphate, in the form of granules, has been on the market since 2004. In this study we report long-term implant survival rate.
