The aim of this study was to elucidate the effect of a bovine hydroxyapatite/collagen (BHC) block in one-wall intrabony periodontal defects in dogs.
A one-wall intrabony periodontal defect (4 mm wide and 5 mm deep) was prepared bilaterally at the mesial side of the mandibular fourth premolar in five beagle dogs. After thorough root planing, block-type BHC (4×5×5 mm) was placed on one side. The contralateral defect area did not receive any material as a sham-surgery control. Histological analysis of the sites was performed after an 8-week healing period.
Two of five samples in the experimental group healed well without dissipation of the graft materials, and histological analysis revealed excellent regeneration of the periodontal tissues. However, most of the grafted materials had been displaced in the other three samples, leaving only a small portion of the graft. The measured parameters exhibited large standard deviations, and the mean values did not differ significantly between the experimental and sham-surgery control sides.
The application of BHC alone-without a barrier membrane-to wide, one-wall intrabony periodontal defects yielded inconsistent results regarding both periodontal regeneration and substantivity of the graft materials. Thus, the use of a barrier membrane for noncontained-type defects is recommended to improve the stability of the grafted material, and to condense it.

In the present study, numerous multinucleated osteoclast-like cells were observed around the residual biomaterials in both of the experimental groups, consistent with findings from previous studies [26,29-31].

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to elucidate the role of collagen membranes (CMs) when used in conjunction with bovine hydroxyapatite particles incorporated with collagen matrix (BHC) for lateral onlay grafts in dogs. The first, second, and third premolars in the right maxilla of mongrel dogs (n=5) were extracted. After 2 months of healing, two BHC blocks (4 mm×4 mm×5 mm) were placed on the buccal ridge, one with and one without the coverage by a CM. The animals were sacrificed after 8 weeks for histometric analysis. The collagen network of the membranes remained and served as a barrier. The quantity and quality of bone regeneration were all significantly greater in the membrane group than in the no-membrane group (P<0.05). The use of barrier membranes in lateral onlay grafts leads to superior new bone formation and bone quality compared with bone graft alone.

    ABSTRACT: Background: In early experiments, we prepared hydroxyapatite-coated mechanical heart valve embedded with collagen using impulse laser sediment method. Objective: To further analyze the histocompatibility and toxicity of hydroxyapatite-coated mechanical heart valve embedded with collagen. Methods: After passage, canine vascular endothelial cell suspension was inoculated onto the hydroxyapatite-coated mechanical heart valve embedded with collagen. One group was inoculated in 5% CO2, 37 °C incubator for 3 weeks static culture, and the other group was inoculated in 5% CO2, 37 °C incubator for 3 weeks spinner culture. Scanning electron microscope was used to observe cell attachment on the material. 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay was used to the proliferative capacity of vascular endothelial cells cultured with the hydroxyapatite-coated mechanical heart valve embedded with collagen. Results and Conclusion: During the spinner culture, adherent cells were found on the surface of mechanical heart valve, and the cells distributed evenly and confluent at 21 days to cover the surface of the material. The number of adherent cells in the spinner culture was higher than that in the static culture. The cells during the static culture were aggregated and distributed irregularly. The mechanical heart valve exhibited no effects on the proliferation of canine vascular endothelial cells which grew well. These findings indicate that the hydroxyapatite-coated mechanical heart valve embedded with collagen exert no effect on proliferation of vascular endothelial cells, has no toxicity and has good biocompatibility.

    ABSTRACT: Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or a cavity, remains a major public health problem in the most communities even though the prevalence of disease has decreased since the introduction of fluorides for dental care. Therefore, biomaterials to fill dental defects appear to be necessary to fulfill customers' needs regarding the properties and the processing of the products. Bioceramics and glass-ceramics are widely used for these purposes, as dental inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns or bridges. Calcium orthophosphates belong to bioceramics but they have some specific advantages over other types of bioceramics due to a chemical similarity to the inorganic part of both human and mammalian bones and teeth. Therefore, calcium orthophosphates (both alone and as components of various formulations) are used in dentistry as both dental fillers and implantable scaffolds. This review provides brief information on calcium orthophosphates and describes in details current state-of-the-art on their applications in dentistry and dentistry-related fields. Among the recognized dental specialties, calcium orthophosphates are most frequently used in periodontics; however, the majority of the publications on calcium orthophosphates in dentistry are devoted to unspecified "dental" fields.
