Introduction: Bone regeneration is one of the biggest challenges for Implantology. Finding a bone base with suitable volume and height for the installation of dental implants is not always possible, and various techniques have been improved to regenerate lost structure. The autogenous bone graft is considered the “gold standard” of regenerative therapies for having osteogenic properties that are not found in other techniques. Yet, the patient needs to perform two surgical procedures, resulting in increased surgical time, longer recovery, increased risk of infection, bleeding, fracture and post-operative pain. Objectives: The purpose of this article was to assess the bioengineering tissue and regenerative procedures performed in a less invasive way, with lower morbidity for the patient. Results: Checking the clinical applicability of stem cell therapy may be a routine for the implantologist. The results of this pattern of regeneration presented excellent maintenance of the formed bone, with low resorption rates, as well as vitality and adequate histologic quality of formed bone tissue, allowing the patient to perform larger restorations with more conservative and less invasive surgeries. Conclusions: It can be concluded that the use of bone substitutes optimized with mesenchymal stem cells have shown promising results in clinical application.
