Osbone Synthetic Hydroxyapaite 250-1000µm
Osbone® Dental is a new-generation, synthetic hydroxyapatite offering a safe and effective alternative to hydroxyapatite products of human or animal origin. Its high prosity and ability for rapid osseointegration makes it an excellent choice for:
- Socket preservation
- Highly stable implant beds
- Sinus lifting procedures
- Ridge augmentations
- Guided Tissue Regeneration
- Buccal wall defects
The use of Osbone® Dental may prove to be the best solution despite the presence of challenging situations such as nicotine abuse, metabolic diseases, osteoporosis and other cases where bone growth is compromised.
Osbone® demonstrates excellent cell proliferation. In contrast, bovine hydroxyapatite only produced isolated cells and a low proliferation after 28 days.¹
INTERCONNECTING SPONGIOUS OPEN-CELL PORE STRUCTURE
The high porosity of Osbone® (80%) provides an optimized open-cell structure that closely resembles human cancellous bone.²
IDEAL FLEXIBILITY FOR IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED PLACEMENT
An open study with 32 centers, 190 patients, and at least 12 months follow-up has been published using Osbone². Of the augmented implant areas, 98.7 % were reported as suitable at the time of implant placement. Immediate placement was performed in 117 of the implants. The authors reported that there was “… never any loss of a dental implant, confirming the stability of the healed ceramic material”.
ADDITIONAL Osbone® ADVANTAGES
High patient acceptance – Osbone® is readily accepted by patients thanks to the fully synthetic origin. Patient information need not address possible complications and risks of immunological reactions or infections of biological origin.
No complicated record keeping necessary – Simple patient labels are included with Osbone®, but there is no requirement for extensive record keeping and reporting as with human material.
Natural osseoinductivity – Osbone® is mixed with the patient’s own blood to provide enhanced healing and form a putty like consistency, allowing the patient’s own cells to stimulate growth.
No hazardous waste – In contrast to materials of biological origin, the production process Osbone is ecologically friendly and does not produce any hazardous waste.
