Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate if a synthetic granular calcium phosphate compound (CPC) and a composite bisphosphonate-linked hyaluronic acid-calcium phosphate hydrogel (HABP center dot CaP) induced similar or more amount of bone as bovine mineral in a modified sinus lift rabbit model.Material and methods: Eighteen adult male New Zeeland White rabbits, received randomly one of the two test materials on a random side of the face, and bovine mineral as control on the contralateral side. In a sinus lift, the sinus mucosa was elevated and a titanium mini-implant was placed in the alveolar bone. Augmentation material (CPC, HABP center dot CaP or bovine bone) was applied in the space around the implant. The rabbits were euthanized three months after surgery and qualitative and histomorphometric evaluation were conducted. Histomorphometric evaluation included three different regions of interest (ROIs) and the bone to implant contact on each installed implant.Results: Qualitative assessment (p=<.05), histomorphometric evaluations (p=<.01), and implant incorporation (p=<.05) showed that CPC and bovine mineral induced similar amount of bone and more than the HABP center dot CaP hydrogel.Conclusion: CPC induced similar amount of bone as bovine mineral and both materials induced more bone than HABP center dot CaP hydrogel. Clinical significance: The CPC is suggested as a synthetic alternative for augmentations in the maxillofacial area.
