The problem of healing bone defects of odontogenetic aetiology is the most frequent cause of failure in surgical treatment of an ostitic process. The aim of this study was to valorise the successfulness of healing of bone defects after implantation of a new alloplastic copolymer - polyglycol bone implant (Fisiograft).
A group of 45 subjects was examined with an ostitic process on teeth of the intracanine region. The results were valorised on the basis of densitometric measurement over a period of 12 months after implantation. The results obtained indicate that polyglycol copolymer bone implants can be successfully used in the treatment of bone defects of odontogenetic aetiology. Their fundamental advantage is slower biodegradation, which ensures a more suitable area for the apposition of new bone in the lumen of the bone defect, simple application in clinical work and the possibility of a mutual combination of all three available forms.
