Veterinary dentistry and oral surgery is beginning to incorporate osseous graft material and techniques into their everyday dental clinical practices. Autogenous, allogenic xenografts and synthetics are all part of a new armamentarium to improve clinical results and achieve osseous reconstruction either to preserve anatomical ridge contours or to support implants placed to replace teeth extracted or previously missing. Clinicians and researchers have been exploring the use of calcium sulfate (CS) for over 100 years in orthopedic, spinal arthrodesis, and maxillofacial surgery. CS is an inexpensive, easy-to-use material that offers many advantages as a predictable and significant bone regeneration substrate.
