    Backgrounds: Bone repair is a complex multistep process, flavonoids group present in Moringa Oliefera and Marine collagen helps to increase the bone minerals contents density of bone. Objectives: the aim of study was to evaluation the differences between the healing process when used of Moringa Oleifera (MO), Marine collagen (MC) and their combination (MM) on bone defects (experimental groups) and bone defect that heal normally (CONT) (control group). Material and Methods: 20 albino rats were anesthetized and both femurs prepared by drilling intrabony defects (2mm diameter, 3mm depth). In 10 rats, right defects consider control while left defects treated with MO, in other 10 rats right defect treated with MC while left defects treated with MM. scarification done in 2 periods: 2 and 4 weeks.
