Factors Influencing Bone Resorption After Alveolar Bone Grafting

Xin Wang/Yi Luo

Objective: To study patients who underwent alveolar bone grafting, summarize treatment success rates, and analyze the factors influencing bone resorption after surgery. Methods: A retrospective analysis of a group of 108 alveolar cleft patients used multifactorial analysis to identify statistically significant factors. Results: The overall survival rate of alveolar bone grafting was 88%, clinical success rate was 60%. Factors with statistical significance were (1) patient age at surgery; (2) type of cleft; (3) postsurgical stimulation; and (4) the surgeon. The factors with no statistical significance were (1) patient gender; (2) type of surgery; (3) tooth extraction during surgery; and (4) the width of the cleft. Conclusion: The success rate of alveolar bone grafting can be improved; treatment at the best time, correcting malopositioned teeth and malocclusion before surgery, improving surgical techniques, and providing exact functional stimulation will aid in achieving optimal results.
