Abstract: Within 4 weeks, the mixed BMP/HAP group showed the highest level of bone induction, especially compared to the BMP group, but this was non-significant; even with a 95% CI, the result was negative. This reveals that BMP alone can be applied, with a final result the same as that seen in the mixed BMP/HAP group. BMP and HAP, both being osteoinducting agents, even though they differ from a material classification point of view, have a positive effect on osteogenesis.
