Critical-sized bone defects in the maxillofacial region attributed to congenital maldevelopment, trauma, periodontal disease, or surgical ablation, as in the case of tumor surgery, and progressive resorption of the alveolar bone after tooth loss can cause damage to their structures, leading to noticeable deformity and dysfunction. Therefore, maxillofacial bone regeneration has been attracting great interest of many surgical specialties, specialties of dentistry, and experts in the region of stem cell and biomaterial. Clinical imperatives for maxillofacial bone regeneration require new therapies or procedures instead of autologous/allogeneic bone grafts. A variety of biomaterials have been developed as alternatives over a short period of time. This chapter reviews current clinical treatments and the biomaterials clinically used for maxillofacial bone regeneration. Moreover, recent advances and future directions in biomaterials used for maxillofacial bone regeneration have been discussed in the present chapter.
