Abstract:This study was performed to identify the calcium phosphate minerals, chemical element and Ca/P ratio and to examine the surface structure of autogenous tooth bone grafting material (AutoBT) which recently developed and applied clinically as a bone graft materials. The analytical results showed that AutoBT is composed of low-crystalline hydroxyapatite (HA) and possibly other calcium phosphate minerals, which is similar to the minerals of human bone tissues. And the dental crown portion was composed of high-crystalline calcium phosphate minerals (mainly HA) with higher Ca/P ratio while the root portion was mainly composed of low-crystalline calcium phosphates with relatively low Ca/P ratio.
