In modern surgical dentistry and maxillofacial surgery, various osteoplastic materials are increasingly used. The scope of application of these materials is from filling in bone defects after tooth extraction to osteosuppressive operations in order to optimize the regeneration of bone tissue of the jaw. The qualitative characteristics of such materials, including osteoinductivity, bioresistance, biocompatibility, as well as the ability to perform and maintain the volume of a bone defect, are due to various properties of the substances included in the compositions. Hydroxyapatite and collagen compositions ("Gapkol", "Kolapol" KP, KP-2, KP-3, "Kollapan", "Ossokol", "Aukepe", "Stimul-OSS"), which promote fibroblast proliferation, vascularization of nearby tissues and the formation of new bone tissue, are of great clinical use.
