The use of bone grafts is the basis of all craniofacial surgery. Bone grafts are used to stabilize the open segments, expand the patient's structural boundaries, and fill defects created by trauma or congenital malformations. Bone grafts are harvested from local or distant sites as indicated. Biomaterial implants are used as bone substitutes when it is not possible to use bone grafts.
