The best materials which have been used from times immemorial include autogenous bone, bone allografts, xenografts, and alloplast
such as tricalcium phosphate (TCP), resorbable and nonresorbable hydroxyapatite (HA), bovine-derived bone mineral, and bioactive glasses.
The present study attempted to assess the antibacterial activity of fluoride incorporated to HA, which is one of the most commonly used alloplast
in the field of Periodontology.
A staged laryngotracheal reconstruction using alloplast
(Proplast) in the canine model.
Management of unilateral condylar hyperplasia with a high condylectomy, skeletal anchorage, and a CAD/CAM alloplast
20118, performed a pilot study using split mouth design, 10 patients were treated either with open flap debridement alone or with new composite alloplast
(Hydroxyapetite, Bioglass, Calcium phosphate) implantation.
Studies have shown the beneficial effects of the use of regenerative biomaterials in augmenting the alveolus following extractions including autogenous, allogenic, xenograft, and alloplast
sources [12, 13].

The author has developed a technique whereby the ENDURAGen alloplast
acts as a carrier for autologous auricular cartilage.
Norian CRS Bone Cement, an injectable synthetic bone alloplast
, was developed to repair wrist fractures, and latter expanded to vertebral fractures.
Bio active glass (PERIOGLASS) mixed with medical grade calcium sulfate was placed on the ridge to augment it buccally and coronally (Figure 3).

In general, grafts can be categorized into autogenous, allograft, alloplast
and xenograft sources.
