Autografts are bone grafts, which come from your own body. This type of graft is still considered the “gold standard” by many surgeons. It offers the best of both worlds; it has very good osteoconductivity and also great osteoinductivity due to its high content of resident growth factors. The disadvantage is the higher morbidity. It is always necessary to conduct a secondary surgical access in a remote location of the body in order to harvest the bone. Depending on the quantity of bone needed, this can be the hip (for larger quantities) all the way down to an intra-oral site, such as the chin or the back of the jaw. Autogenous bone grafts have shown to be some of the most predictable grafts in surgery.
