Objective This pilot study was designed to investigate the effect of new implant coating material on ‎postoperative bone healing process.‎ Study Design experimental formula of flax oil-based implant coating was prepared.Twelve (12) white New Zealand male rabbits were randomly distributed into four groups (n=3). ‎Surgery was performed to prepare 2mm hole in the zygomatic bone. The right side was ‎filled ‎with the test material (test group). whereas the hole in the left side of the same animal was left ‎material free. Bone healing process was investigated after 3,7,14, and 21 days. ‎ Results New growth of normal bone explained by active bone apposition was observed ‎in the ‎test operation area in the marrow space‎ after three days, less postoperative ‎inflammation was observed explained by less inflammatory cells in the operation area.‎ Conclusıons The new formula could represent a promising implant coating material for better bone healing process and hence faster osseointegration.
