Recent research has demonstrated that dentin chips have shown some promise in laboratory animals (i.e., rabbit teeth), however, I have yet to see any promising research on the use of dentin chips to augment human bone.  Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

You cannot use dentin chips in bone augmentation as they are completely different in molecular structure.
