When autologous bone graft is not available, a bovine anorganic bone mineral (Bio-Oss)was been proposed as bone substitute and successfully utilized as osteoconductive filler. Recently, platelet rich plasma as a source of autogenous growth factors was introduced in bone augmentation procedures, to improve the tissue healing, the bone maturation and the overall clinical outcome. The purpose of this study was to analyse the amount of Bio-Oss ossification on cases of allobone graft recording and comparing radiologic data 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, and 16 weeks after surgery. The radiologic evaluation has been performed by wedge step. The gradient slightly decreased by postoperative 2 weeks but increased by postoperative 4 weeks and 8 weeks. Using digital imaging, the quantitative and qualitative analyses according to bone changes were possible with time. The use of PRP gave a superior result compared with the control group in where PRP was not used.
