As the saying goes-without the wall or base, no treasure of art can be incorporated Alveolar ridge forms the basic infrastructure for a successful denture. But resorption is inevitable sequelae of extraction.

  Various graft materials have been used to improve the alveolar ridge. Hydroxyapatite is the most commonly used bone graft material. The main disadvantage of hydroxyapatite is the particle displacement leading to inadequate ridge form.

  Fibrin and collagen have been used as sealants in many surgeries. So it is prudent to combine fibrillar collagen and hydroxyapatite and utilize this material as an effective graft.

  The objective of this study is to study the usefulness of fibrin-fibrillar collagen hydroxyapatite composite as a graft material for the repair of experimentally created bony defects.
