Research on bone grafting

Bone grafting research

Major review article – Darby
Cochrane review found basically the same

  1. No technique is superior in socket preservation post ext (ie type graft, type membrane)
  2. AB use inconclusive
  3. Mebrane helps in amount bone formed
  4. Primary closure when using membrane is required for optimal results
  5. Primary closure not always needed

Ridge expansion better than DO, GBR, inlay and onlay grafts and revasculariztion flap

3D preservation with allograft and membrane better than ungrafted – Iasella
FDBA better DFDBA – Becker  Why perio likes DFDBA so much for this is silly.  More effort to produce since need to demin, less proteins because of that, and increase in cost.

Implants in bone graft

No difference in survival of dental implants in grafted or native bone.  Smoking and lack professional care did impact survival rate.  Tran 2016 IJOMI
