In search of a new gold standard graft material with low technique sensitivity, yet possessing the ideal characteristics of osteoconductivity, osteoinductivity, osteogenicity, and biocompatibility, many researchers have focused on human teeth, particularly dentin as an autogenous graft material. A search was done in PubMed and Google Scholar databases for studies done within the last ten years from 2013 to March 2023 using autogenous tooth graft prepared at chairside in various clinical applications. The scientific basis, preparation, clinical applications, histological examination, and limitations of autogenous dentin grafting material are discussed. In addition, the authors’ own protocol for chairside preparation of the demineralized dentin graft is described.
