In the department I am working right now, we always use artificial bone to patients requiring bone grafting. We utilize bone fragments from animals rather than using patient’s own bone. But not today. We’ll be doing buccal fat pad.

What is buccal fat pad? Why is it use for grafting?

What does this article say?
