The reconstruction of the defective alveolar bone is of great significance to restore the oral and maxillofacial aesthetics and function, and is also one of the difficulties in tissue regeneration. Sticky bone is a composite biomaterial made from a mixture of plasma products and bone substitutes. With the progress of basic research and the improvement of preparation techniques, sticky bone made from different production methods has been successively applied in the oral tissue regeneration including alveolar bone reconstruction, and has achieved positive effect on soft and hard tissue regeneration. We reviewed the evolution, preparation method, characteristics, and the clinical progress of sticky bone, aiming to promote the application of sticky bone in clinical work.

Key words: sticky bone, plasma products, bone substitutes, tissue regeneration
