The use of biomaterials as an alternative Conclusions: The block allograft procedure has shortened surgical time and it is still controversial especially in critical defects such as vertical-horizontal reduced post-operation morbidity. Further research is needed to determine alveolar defects. In such situations Khoury developed 3D bone reconstruction whether the 3D block technique had survival rates equal to the others graft some years ago , where the autogenous cortical blocks serve as buccal and materials in term of long follow-up time.

However, the use of this technique sometimes requires a large amount of bone particles to fill such a space.
