AUTHOR(S): Dr. Nitesh Chhikara, Dr. Sarah Shaik and Dr. Saurav bhargava
ABSTRACT:Distraction Osteogenesis represents a biologic process of new bone formation between the surfaces of bone segments that are gradually separated by incremental traction, and is also termed as callotasis, and osteodistraction. It is an advanced surgical procedure of regenerating new bone and associated soft tissues along with biological tissue adaptation and modification without the need of any grafting procedures. This article covers a wide range of applications and implications in the field of oral and maxillofacial trauma, pathology, reconstruction and orthognathic surgeries which are documented in the literature for distraction Osteogenesis.
