Summary

In recent years, there has been a range of studies which have proven the effectiveness of extracorporeal shockwave therapy in optimization of restitution of bone defects not only in general orthopedics scope, but also in dentistry. The aim of the study was to study changes in the quality of bone regenerate and its tissue composition in the process of restitution of postoperative BD. The experiment involved 18 pubescent outbred rabbits (males), 6 months old and above at the start of the experiment, with average weight of 2.5 ± 0.2 kg. The histological picture on day 90 in group A corresponded to restitution of BD due to the variously mineralized cancellous bone, whereas in animals of group B the newly formed bone tissue was not structurally different from the intact one. In experimental conditions, applying the methods proposed by the authors, we can achieve certain modifications in bone tissue which are radiographically and histologically confirmed
