Biomaterial in mixed forms or called composite is usually used for those applications. Based on matrix characteristic, composite is divided into two groups, absorbable and nonabsorbable. This classification is based on their ability to absorb. This study was aimed to review the use of absorbable composite matrix in dentistry. The absorbable composite matrix was able to improve and replaced bone tissue or craniofacial. Absorbable composite was able to prevent infection and tissue shrinkage, so it can replace the esthetic. Absorbable composite can be used in operative dentistry and prosthodontia as filling materials and denture. It was concluded that absorbable composite matrix could be used widely in dentistry.
