Purpose: Evidence on the outcomes of functional loading placed in recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2)/acellular collagen sponge (ACS)–induced bone is lacking. The aim of this study was to verify whether guided bone regeneration (GBR) with rhBMP-2/ACS enhances regeneration of missing bone and osseointegration of dental implants subject to functional loading. Materials and Methods: Two bilateral standardized large saddle-type defects (~10 × 10 × 6 mm) were surgically created in each mandible of seven beagle dogs 2 months after tooth extraction. Defects were immediately reconstructed randomly using rhBMP-2 (O-BMP or InFuse) soaked in ACS, deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) granules, or ACS alone as surgical control and subsequently covered with collagen membrane. Screw-type sand-blasted, acid-etched dental implants were placed 3 months later into the reconstructed defects and into adjacent bone. Osseointegration was allowed to progress for 3 months before functional loading of 3 months until sacrifice. Results: Significantly more bone fill was radiographically observed for GBR with rhBMP-2/ACS (O-BMP: 92.5%, InFuse: 79%) in comparison to the DBBM (52%) and ACS alone groups (56.6%). Osseointegration was achieved and maintained in all experimental defects challenged by prostheses-driven functional load. The bone density ranged from 37.49% in the ACS group to 64.9% in the rhBMP-2/ACS (InFuse) group with no significance. The highest mean percentage of BIC was found in rhBMP-2/ACS (InFuse: 52.98%) with no statistical difference. Crestal bone resorption was observed around implants placed in reconstructed areas without any significant difference. Conclusion: GBR with rhBMP-2/ACS provided the greatest bone fill among the three treatment procedures. GBR with rhBMP-2/ACS showed efficacy for placement, osseointegration, and functional loading of titanium implants in alveolar ridge defects.
