The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a matrix consisting of recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor BB (rhPDGF-BB)–hydrated cancellous allogenic block graft in the reconstruction of large local human alveolar ridge defects. The results suggest improved bone regeneration when combining rhPDGF-BB with the allogenic block graft. The clinical and histologic evidence of new bone formation as well as bone remodeling supports the clinical potency of this growth factor–mediated therapy.
