Objectives: this study was carried out to evaluate the gaining occurring in the bone gaining after the simultaneous grafting with calcium sulfate around dental implants. Materials and methods: 24 implantation sites in the anterior area of the maxilla were included in this study. Dental implants were inserted, bone grafting was done simultaneously and post evaluation of the overall bone gaining 6 months after the grafting process (T2 time) was done to study the changes. Results: Paired Samples T-Test revealed a significant difference between the three time points (before the implantation, the day after it, six months later) (P-value = 0.000) at the confidence level of 95%. Furthermore, two-way comparisons between the three follow-ups was done to determine where the difference was. The test showed that there is a significant difference (P-value < 0.05) between all time points. by doing two-way comparisons between the three follow-ups, it was shown that the significant difference (P-value < 0.05) was in each comparison. Conclusion: We conclude within the limits of this study that an adequate amount of bone gain was found 6 months after the bone grafting process.
