Hydroxyapatite for Sinus Lift?

Last Updated January 03, 2017
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

As synthetic bone substitute materials become more popular, it will be important to examine the tissue composition of augmented sites after using these materials. A recent study compared different types of hydroxyapatite (HA), for sinus floor elevation and augmentation.
The conclusion:

Both synthetic bone substitute materials, nanocrystalline and nanoporous HA, were found to support bone formation in sinus floor elevation and augmentation procedures by osteoconductivity. They were not completely resorbed after 6 months. The amounts of newly formed bone, soft tissue, and bone substitute material remnants were found to be similar, indicating that both materials are likewise suitable for sinus floor elevation and augmentation procedures.
