Tissue engineering is knowledge of designing tissues such as maxillofacial bone. Three key factors of tissue enginee-ring comprise of morphogenesis factors, responding stem cells and scaffolds. Growth factors have an important role in differentiation and cell morphogenesis. In this review, literature was searched for bone engineering in craniomaxillofacial tissues and the use of growth factors was reviewed. Reviewing MEDLINE indexed articles shows various growth factors applied in jaw bone regeneration. Application of growth factors should be standardized in order to improve their use in future bone tissue engineering.
Keywords: tissue engineering, bone regene-ration, growth factor, craniomaxillofacial
