Defects in the maxillofacial region may result from many causes, including injury and tumor excision. Such defects must be repaired as completely as possible so that the best possible restoration of function and cosmesis can be achieved. Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are a blend of amorphous and crystalline compounds that are used in paste form and become solid HA when they set. This article will review literature regarding various types if CPCs, their application to maxillofacial surgery, and the contraindications and complications associated with their use.
