The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the contributions of autogenous tooth bone graft (ATBG) combined with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on new bone formation and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 in rabbit calvarial defects. Twelve male New Zealand rabbits were used in this study. Three circular bone defects were prepared in each rabbit with a drill. These defects were divided into 3 groups: control, treated with ATBG, and treated with ATBG+PRF. The animals were sacrificed at 28 days. Samples were evaluated by histomorphometric analyses and total augmented area, new bone area and bone density were calculated. In addition, expression of BMP-2 was determined by immunohistochemical staining. The total augmented area, new bone area and bone density were significantly greater in the ATBG group than in the control group (P <0.05). Also, these values were significantly higher in the ATBG+PRF group than the ATBG group (P <0.05). Test groups demonstrated significantly increased BMP-2 levels compared with the control group (P <0.05). The present study suggested that ATBG combined with PRF significantly increased the new bone formation and enhanced bone healing in cranial defects.

The continuous turnover of bone matrix and mineral that involves first, an increase in resorption (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive bone formation (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium homeostasis. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
