Anyone have bovine for bone grafting/implant?

For those who need a bone graft for a dental implant, did your dentist use bovine? If so, did it work ok for the long run? I heard using your own bone is best, but many opt not to. I have also heard of using cadavor and I wonder if bovine is equal to cadavor in effectiveness.

I don't know what material was used in my bone grafting other than it was not my own bone. I believe it was some kind of synthetic material. Both implants were successful.

I am having 4 implants . I have never had one. My doctor is using a cadaver bone. He said it was the best choice in his opinion...we'll see. They do the surger July 7th, wait 4 months, put the screws in wait 4 more months before adding the teeth...sure hope it's worth it.
