Grafting materials must be biocompatible, safe and able to secure
lasting results. Among the fundamental characteristics of the ideal material is the
ability to promote bone regeneration. The autologous tooth is a very
promising candidate because it allows bone induction and its persistence
after treatment.



During recent decades, the properties of the autologous tooth used as grafting material have been highlighted by numerous studies, on this basis several companies have developed devices to treat it in order to increase its effectiveness.
The efforts made are the beginning of a path that reveals excellent prospects in the field of bone regeneration.
After examining the scientific literature and the studies carried out at the Politecnico di Milano, the book illustrates the different tooth preparation devices on the market and provides step-by-step information on their use, from tooth cleaning to shredding, to material treatment. before grafting.
The volume is completed by an extensive review of clinical cases.
