Maxillary Sinus Floor Elevation for Implant Placement With Demineralized Freeze-Dried Bone and Bovine Bone (Bio-Oss): A Clinical Study of 20 Patients


PMID: 9497715
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0220

The objective of this study was to determine the predictability of endosseous implants placed in a maxillary sinus grafted with a mixture of bovine porous bone mineral and demineralized freeze-dried bone. Sixty implants were placed in 20 patients representing 28 sinuses using either a one- or two-stage technique. After an implant loading period of more than 2 years, the survival rate (eg, a clinically functioning implant without signs of mobility or infection) varied from 90% to 96%. No infections or other complications were encountered. The data suggest that this treatment regimen can result in a high rate of survival.
