What is MinerOss?
MinerOss from BioHorizons is a mixture of allograft mineralized cortical and cancellous bone particles for use in ridge and sinus augmentation, socket grafting, periodontal defects and grafting for implant placement. MinerOss provides the advantage of having the combination of cortical and cancellous chips in one vial.
Is Bio-OSS xenograft?
Clinical evaluation of Bio-Oss: a bovine-derived xenograft for the treatment of periodontal osseous defects in humans.
What is Bio-Oss collagen?
Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is used in the most varied indications, including ridge preservation, minor bone augmentation and periodontal regeneration. The collagen is absorbed after a few weeks and does not replace the barrier function of a membrane.
What is bio-OSS used for?
Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is recommended for reconstruction of bone defects in maxillofacial surgery and in dental surgery, e.g.: Augmentation/reconstruction of alveolar ridges. Filling of extraction sockets. Implantology: preparation of implant sites, filling of bone dehiscences, and sinus floor augmentations.
Is MinerOss freeze dried?
While lyophilization imparts a suitable shelf-life, the freeze-drying process has been shown to significantly reduce the mechanical strength and toughness (the energy / work required to fracture) of the grafts.
What is a Collaplug?
The Collaplug collagen wound dressings is a soft, white, pliable, nonfriable sponge used in dental surgery. Because of the coherent sponge structure, application of the dressings to the wound is easily controlled.
Is Bio-OSS safe?
Bio-Oss is a safe, effective bone graft material from specially processed bovine sources. Under the electron microscope, Bio-Oss looks very similar to human bone. Because of its similarity to human bone, Bio-Oss is highly successful in helping new bone to form.
What is Bio-Oss made of?
Bovine porous bone mineral (Bio-Oss Collagen) is a relatively new material used in periodontal regeneration. This material is prepared by protein extraction of bovine bone which results in a structure similar to human cancellous bone and has the ability to enhance bone formation.
How does BIO-OSS work?
Bio-Oss is a safe, effective bone graft material from specially processed bovine sources. Bio-Oss acts as a framework onto which bone forming cells and blood vessels migrate. As these cells and blood vessels travel along the Bio-Oss framework, healthy new bone is formed and the defect is repaired.
Do collagen plugs dissolve?
– When bone graft is placed in a tooth socket after extraction, a collagen plug is placed over it to provide protection. This initially protects the bone graft and then dissolves and is replaced by your gum tissues. This event may occur 3-5 days after the extraction leaving a “crater-appearance” in the tooth socket.
Who makes Collaplug?
The Collaplug collagen wound dressings is a soft, white, pliable, nonfriable sponge used in dental surgery.
What is Bio Oss made of?
What can you do with mineross X xenografts?
Available in a variety of options, MinerOss X is an anorganic bovine bone mineral matrix that is physically and chemically comparable to the mineral structure of human bone. The MinerOss X family of xenografts can be used in a wide variety of grafting applications.
What do you need to know about mineross X?
MinerOss X Available in a variety of options, MinerOss X is an anorganic bovine bone mineral matrix that is physically and chemically comparable to the mineral structure of human bone. The MinerOss X family of xenografts can be used in a wide variety of grafting applications.
How is bone formed with Geistlich bio-OSS?
9 years postoperatively: new bone is in direct contact with the Geistlich Bio-Oss ® particles. Bone is forming bridges between bone trabeculae and Geistlich Bio-Oss ® as well as between the particles of the inorganic bone matrix 7.
What are the benefits of Geistlich bio OSS?
The outstanding osteo-conductive properties of Geistlich Bio-Oss ® lead to effective and predictable bone regeneration 3-5. Geistlich Bio-Oss ® particles become an integral part of the newly formed bone framework and preserve volume over the long term 6-9.
