(a) Box plot showing the medians and distributions of the difference in buccal and lingual bone height (BBH and LBH) and height difference of buccal and lingual bone crest (b-l) in comparison to equivalent measurement on the corresponding mesial root of each defect site ( ). (b) Box plot of vertical bone loss relative to the original bone level measured from central micro-CT sections cut in the mesial-distal direction. The whiskers of the plots represent the 5th and 95th percentiles, .
