Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the radiopacity of bone graft materials (BGMs) in comparison with bovine mandibular cortical bone and human dentine. Eight samples of each material (8 mm in diameter and 3 mm in thickness) were prepared from Dexabone(®) (DB), Bio - Oss(®) (BO), 4BONE SBS (4B), KASIOS(®) TCP (KA), S.C. PONETI (PO), and Apatite-Wollastonite (AW). The optical densities of each material, along with one tooth section (human canine tooth 1 mm slice), bovine mandibular cortical bone (BC) sampl…
