Table 3 Mean bone height (BH) loss and mean resorption rate over time

From: Rehabilitation of atrophic jaw using iliac onlay bone graft combined with dental implants

  Mean BH loss (mm)* Mean resorption rate (%)**
Th 1.33 ± 0.81 14%
Ti 2.00 ± 1.88 21%
T1 2.29 ± 1.70 24%
T2 2.55 ± 1.68 26.8%
T3 3.05 ± 1.63 32%
T4 4.02 ± 1.50 42.2%
T5 4.12 ± 1.82 43.2%
T6 4.05 ± 1.83 42.5%
  1. Th: 3 months post-augmentation, Ti: at implant installation, T1: 3 months after installation, T2: at prosthetic loading, T3: 1 year after installation, T4: 2 years after installation, T5: 3 years after installation, T6: 5 years after installation
  2. *BH at Th and Ti differed significantly. BH at T2 and T3, and T3 and T4 differed significantly. BH at T4, T5, and T6 did not differ significantly (p < 0.05)
  3. **Mean bone height gained after augmentation was 9.53 ± 4.78 mm
