Dental treatment may require osseous grafting. Pathologic voids may require grafting to restore osseous anatomy. Various osseous grafting materials have been used and reported. These include autografts, allografts, xenografts, and nonbiological products. Osseous grafts act as a scaffold, maintaining volume while allowing bone formation. Calcium sulfate has been used as an osseous void filler, binder, and grafting material. It possesses many characteristics of an ideal material for bone regeneration. It provides an effective cement for maxillofacial and dental augmentation that is easy to use and cost effective, while not requiring complete soft tissue coverage or a membrane at placement.
