Six months after implant placement, the peri-implant bone levels were maintained. A prosthesis delivered 3 months after implant placement provided excellent rehabilitation. Histological analysis of the bone cores revealed that the graft material was still undergoing remodeling, with newly formed vital bone in all fields and osteoclasts included in the mineralized component.
The deantigenated equine bone was biocompatible and resorbed only minimally. This material seems to offer excellent potential for being incorporated in a procedure that increases the width of edentulous alveolar crests.
