  • Abstract

    Implant dentistry is becoming popular in today’s world. Dental implants are being preferred over other permanent prosthesis. Moreover, the ideal criteria for implant placement are adequate bone thickness. For individuals without sufficient bone placement, bone autografts are performed. However, like any other treatment, autografts have their own limitations such as insufficient amount of donor tissue, etc. Hence, the search for bone substitutes for dental implants becomes necessary in such cases. For a successful dental implant placement, adequate bone thickness is required. For those with insufficient bone thickness, where other options like bone autografts cannot be performed, implant placement in such cases becomes quite challenging. Therefore, this review focuses on the current bone substitutes in implant dentistry.
