This clinical study was undertaken to evaluate the use of tissue-engineered bone, mesenchymal stem cells, platelet-rich plasma, and beta-tricalcium phosphate as grafting materials for maxillary sinus floor augmentation or onlay plasty with simultaneous implant placement in six patients with 3- to 5-mm alveolar crestal bone height. All 20 implants were clinically stable at second-stage surgery and 12 months postloading. A mean increase in mineralized tissue height of 7.3 4.6 mm was evident when comparing the pre- and postsurgical radiographs. Injectable tissue-engineered bone provided stable and predictable results in terms of implant success. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2005;25:129137.)
