Purpose: Following initial positive reports of the use of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) in combination with bovine bone mineral (BBM) in augmentation procedures, the technique was evaluated in patients with mandibular deficiency. Materials and Methods: Two adult patients required surgical correction of a deficient alveolar ridge (one patient showed horizontal deficiency only, and the other patient presented with horizontal and vertical deficiency) prior to dental implant placement. In both patients, the reconstruction was performed with BBM in combination with mononuclear cells concentrated by the BMAC method using different techniques. Results: The patients recovered well from all surgical procedures. Histologically, there was uniform bone formation, which allowed placement of dental implants. Conclusion: The results suggest that the use of BMAC in combination with BBM, without autogenous bone, has the potential to restore horizontal and vertical mandibular alveolar defects, providing a functional bone structure and allowing dental implant placement for subsequent prosthetic rehabilitation.
