SUMMARY.Background: Several studies have reported certain bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) to have positive effects on bone generation.

Furthermore, no literature could be found to report on the impact that different implant systems, as well as the positioning of the implants had on bone formation if…
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
