Case description

Autogenous grafts involve using bone harvested from the patient's own body to augment or replace bone in another location. This type of grafting is considered advantageous because it minimizes the risk of rejection and provides live bone cells with osteogenic potential. The term "autogenous" means that the graft comes from the same individual. There are different sources for autogenous bone grafts, and the choice depends on the specific case and the amount of bone required. Autograft from the Mandible (Jawbone): In this case, bone be taken from retromolar area and transplanted to augmented area. The harvested bone is typically shaped and secured in the recipient site, promoting the healing and regeneration of bone tissue. Autogenous grafts are often used in dental implant procedures to augment the jawbone when there is insufficient bone mass for implant placement. While autogenous grafts are considered the gold standard for bone grafting due to their osteogenic potential, they do involve an additional surgical site for harvesting, and the procedure has its own set of considerations and potential risks. The decision to use autogenous grafts will depend on the specific needs of the patient and the surgeon's expertise.
