Bachground: There is a large amount of studies about materials used for the substitution of bone in adult patients. However, very little has been written about its use in growing individuals. Bone grafts are necessary to give support, to refill and to favour biological repair in skeletal defects. Although autologous bone graft is the gold standard, it has many limitations, such as morbidity in the donor area, inadequate amount, difficulty to mold some defects. This has developed the interest to create autologous bone grafts.
Material and Method: Strategies of search: It was carried out a quantitative search of the literature index-linked in electronic pages: MedLine (National Library Of. Medicate USES), REACH BASE (Elseviere), Cochrane Library (Contribution Cochrane), ARTEMISA 13 (CONACIT Mexico) and LILACS (BIREME Brazil). For the search: “Cranial Bone Regeneration and Cranial Bone Remodelation” was used.
Results: The papers were analyzed by a group of research specialists (JALP, JFGZ, CJG and ALSB) and were analyzed according to the scale of the Center for Evidence-Based Medicine, Oxford.
Conclusions: The review of the literature, showed that there are no materials that can substitute a bone graft with its osteoinduction, osteoconduction and osteogenesis properties that influence the biological activity of the osteoblasts to create normal bone with the ability to grow with the individual

Key words: Regeneration, bone grafts, autologus bone, osteoinduction, osteoconduction, osteogenesis.
