In implant dentistry, there is a need for synthetic bone substitute blocks to support ridge augmentation in situations where large bone volumes are missing. Polycaprolactone-based scaffolds demonstrated excellent results in bone tissue engineering applications. The use of customized polycaprolactone-tricalcium phosphate (PCL-TCP) displayed promising results from recent rat femur and rabbit calvaria studies. However, data from clinically representative models in larger animals do not exist.
