Oral surgery management and procedures usually lead to irreversible loss of dentition and typical alveolar ridge bone height and width defects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the healing of bone defects after the use of Bio-Gen Mix. The study group consisted of 42 patients treated for dentigeneous cysts, periapical lesions in teeth requiring root apex resection, or patients requiring postextraction ridge augmentation procedures of Bio-Gen Mix bone replacement xenografts. The results of radiological and clinical assessments were summarized using a 3-grade scale for the assessment of intra-osseous defects as proposed by Gutmann and Harrison, and modified by Taschieri et al. Our studies demonstrate that in the case of small bone deficiency, the use of bone replacement materials such as Bio-Gen Mix is sufficiently effective. The procedure leads to good outcomes, relatively fast bone remodeling, and resulting in bone quality largely appropriate for further prosthetic implantation.
