Bone is unique in connective tissue healing because it heals entirely by cellular regeneration and the production of a mineral matrix rather than just collagen deposition known as scar. This article discusses the cellular, tissue, and organ levels in each of the following sections-skeletal embryology, normal bone, examples of abnormal bone, and bone graft healing-as they relate to the jaws and the craniofacial skeleton.
