Bone and skin grafts are the most common grafts used in oral surgery. The graft may be autogenic, isogenic, allogeneic, and xenograft. This new surgical technique is to encourage bone ingrowth through the and replacement of the Proplast by bone. Combination of the Problast with biocompatible materials by painting the Problast with this mixture encourages bone ingrowth through its porosity which is extra porous (70%–90%) by volume. This case report describes a patient with zygomatic bone loss treated by this new surgical technique.
