Bone grafting is a method by which bone deficient areas are built up with the use of different materials, such as autografts, allografts, alloplasts and xenografts. Bone graft materials are placed in different locations for various indications like in alveolar sockets post extraction, to refill a local bony defect due to trauma or infection, to refill a peri-implant defect due to peri-implantitis, for vertical and horizontal augmentation of the mandible and maxilla. Grafts materials acts as a filler and scaffold to help bone formation and promote wound healing. The dental implant therapy demands sufficient bone volume, biologic quality and certain dimensional properties for long term success.
