Abstract:Defects were created in the tooth-supporting bone of six beagle dogs. Biodegradable tricalcium phosphate was compared to cancellous marrow as a treatment method. The findings indicated that ankylosis and resorption of the tooth can occur when using marrow. The ceramic-filled defects healed slower; but the material itself was well tolerated by the tissues, initiated new bone formation, filled in the defect, and has good potential for the treatment of advanced periodontitis.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
