44) In addition, it stimulates the formation of new bone by osteogenesis, osteoinduction, and osteoconduction, (20) it has an anatomical structure that allows cellular invasion while providing structural support to the receptor site, and is an important source of type I collagen, which facilitates the processes of vascularity and resilience, thus promoting osteoblastic activation.
Generally, critical bone defects are treated with bone grafts, preferably autogenous, that favor regeneration of the bone tissue by means of osteoconduction, osteoinduction, and osteogenesis, (ALVES et al.

These materials are by no means new--since the 1980s, a number of biomaterials have demonstrated the ability to induce formation of bone when implanted in a process called osteoinduction.
