The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of autogenous tooth bone graft materials.Materials and Methods:
Hundred implants in 51 patients were selected, and the patients received maxillary sinus augmentation and implant placement using autogenous tooth graft materials at the Chosun University Dental Hospital and Seoul National University Bundang Hospital between July 2009 and November 2010.Results:
In cases using autogenous tooth bone graft alone, or together with other graft material, the implant survival rate was 96.15%. On histomorphologic examination, autogenous tooth bone graft materials showed gradual resorption and new bone formation through osteoconduction and osteoinduction.Conclusions:
The results indicated that autogenous tooth bone graft materials are appropriate for use in maxillary sinus augmentation.
