OBJECTIVES: The aim was to analyze the outcomes of early implant placement after 6 and 12 weeks of healing in ridge reserved sites in a canine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Implants were placed in second maxillary incisors sites in 9 dogs 6 weeks after grafting of the sockets with 90% deproteinized bovine bone mineral in 10% collagen matrix (DBBMC) and closure with resorbable type I/III porcine collagen matrix (PCM). The implants were randomly assigned to 6 (T6) and 12 (T12) weeks of healing. RESULTS: The percentage of bone to implant contact (%BIC), old bone, new bone and residual DBBMC was similar between T6 and T12. In relation to the implant shoulder (IS), the original bone crest (IS-ROB..
