Abstract

Clinical research on octacalcium phosphate collagen (OCP/Col) application in bone defect has demonstrated its high bone regeneration ability. Herein, we conducted a long-term study involving the clinical evaluation of OCP/Col-applied cases. A successful outcome was confirmed in two patients followed up for 7 years and 6.5 years. Both cases showed stable radiographic findings of the bone tissue without any abnormal findings of the oral cavity. To our knowledge, this is the first report to confirm the long-term stability and safety of newly formed bone after OCP/Colimplantation.

Keywords
