The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between the osseointegration of dental implants and tissue-engineered bone using a nanofiber scaffold, PuraMatrix (PM). The first molar and all premolars in the mandibular regions of dogs were extracted, and three bone defects were prepared with a trephine bur on both sides of the mandible after 4 weeks. The experimental groups were as follows: (1) PM, (2) PM and dog mesenchymal stem cells (dMSCs), (3) PM, dMSCs, and platelet-rich plasma, and (4) control (defect only). Implants were placed in the prepared areas 8 weeks later and were assessed by histologic and histomorphometric analyses (bone-to-implant contact [BIC]). The BICs for groups 1, 2, 3, and 4 were 40.77%, 50.35%, 55.64%, and 30.57%, respectively. The findings indicate that PM may be useful as a scaffold for bone regeneration around dental implants.
