Abstract

There was no significant difference between Curacel and bone wax. Histopathologically, the bone wax group showed more osteoblastic activation than Curacel group. For all measurement parameters (osteoblastic activation, osteoclastic activation, fibrous connective tissue, osseous trabeculae), Curacel and bone wax groups had worse results than control group. It is concluded that Curacel has no superiority over bone wax in terms of osseous healing in the oroantral region. There is no need to use oxidized regenerated cellulose or bone wax for small oroantral openings since the healing is better without any intervention. In addition, bone density measurement and histopathological evaluation were consistent in terms of osseous healing of the oroantral opening.
