Abstract

Hydroxyapatite is a biocompatible alloplast with the same chemical composition as bone. It is readily incorporated into host bone, does not undergo appreciable resorption, does not incite a clinically significant foreign body reaction, and resists infection. This article describes forms of hydroxyapatite, procedures for use, and clinical examples.
