Bone grafting is important to preserve the alveolar bone ridge height and volume for dental implant placement. Even though, implant-supported overdentures presents highly successful outcomes it seems that a great number of edentulous individuals have not pursued implant-based rehabilitation. The cost of the treatment is one of the reasons of discrepancy between highly successful therapy and its acceptance. Therefore, the development of biomaterials for bone grafting with comparable characteristics and biological effects than those renowned internationally, is necessary. In addition, domestic manufacture would reduce the high costs in public health arising from the application of these biomaterials in the dental field. The purpose of this clinical case report is to provide clinical evidence of the efficacy of a new bovine bone graft in the bone healing process.
