Abstract: Bone grafting is a surgical procedure of replacing and reconstruction of the lost bone and associated soft tissues with a motive of repair, regeneration and complete replacement of the bone which is missing either due to trauma or pathological reasons. Bone grafts acts as filler or scaffold which allows bone formation and supports wound healing. Also these induce bone regeneration due to rich source of mesenchymal cells, stem cells, progenitor cells and mineral reservoir.
