This study investigated the level of magnetic energy around implants possessing a static magnetic field (SMF) and assessed the in vivo influence of SMF on bone regeneration. Implants possessing a sintered neodymium magnet internally were placed in a rabbit femur. An implant without SMF was placed as control. After 12 weeks of healing in vivo, the bone samples were subjected to histologic/histomorphometric evaluation. The bone-toimplant contact for the test group and the control group were 32.4 ± 13.6% and 17.1 ± 4.5%, respectively, and the differences were statistically significant (P < .05). The results suggested that the SMF promoted new bone apposition.
