Abstract

Freeze-dried bone marrow has been used for grafting alveolar clefts. In all instances in which canines were present, they erupted through the grafted allogeneic bone. The ability to avoid donor site morbidity, coupled with successful eruption of canines through the grafted allogeneic bone, represents an additional technique for treating alveolar clefts.
