Abstract

Recently, techniques have been reported that involve the preparation of extracted teeth from patients used as particulated bone graft materials for bone graft purposes. For implant placement and bone graft, autogenous teeth bone graft materials were used in 15 patients, and clinically excellent results were obtained. In histological examination, favorable bony healing by osteoconduction was observed.
