The association of hydroxyapatite and human fibrin glue has significantly amplified the field of application of biomaterials. We obtain three-dimensional stability of our implant and can thus remodel bone surface and bone defect. Presenting the reconstructive technique in maxillofacial surgery using biomaterials, we report our experience in more than 455 cases.
