Bone grafting may be required prior to implant placement, at the time of implant placement, or subsequent to it. The aim of this study was to compare the healing of onlay block grafts when deproteinized bovine bone coverage was used with the healing of the grafts without such coverage. The purpose was a clinical evaluation of deproteinized bovine bone’s ability to reduce grafted bone resorption. The results indicated that bovine bone can be placed over grafted areas, taking advantage of its osteoconductive properties and compensating for the natural bone resorption caused by remodeling.
