Bone grajis are invaluable players in the arena of regenerative dentistry. Reconstitution of the lost bone was the objective behind the introduction of these bone grajis based on the properties of osteoconduction. osteoinduction and os/eogenesis. Although autogenous bone grajis still uphold their reputation as gold standard. certain issues like the unpredictable quantity and the donor site morbidity limited its usage. Allograjis 100 have their own shortcomings. Subsequently. significant efforts are in progress in the development of ideal bone graji substitutes. . A range of alloplasts starting from hydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate to the currently available nanoparticles. titanium granules are available in the market. Some of these are resorbable while others are not. The point of issue at this juncture is how far are these materials effective in promoting regeneration. In the course offinding a solution, researchers ended up with varied sources for procuring suitable bone grajis. One such resource is Titanium and its availability in the form of porous granules popularly known as porous titanium granules represents a new possibility in augmenting osseous regeneration. The aim of the present review paper is to discuss the characteristics, added benefits as well as different applications of this material with a varied range of success in the field of clinical practice.
