Bone Graft – bone augmentation

A good brand of particulate allograft is Puros Allografts by Zimmer. From its line of allografts for bone augmentation, puros cancellous particulate allograft has become the bone grafting of choice for many dentists.

Cancellous particulate allograft acts as an osteoconductive scaffold for new bone formation. In large volume of applications, studies have shown faster bone regeneration at 6 months than grafts containing sintered bovine bone matrix. While in small volume applications, regeneration of hard bone has been reported as early as 3-5 months.

Cancellous particulate allograft retains osteconductive properties due to preservation of the natural bone matrix collagen and mineral composition, trabecular pattern, and original porosity enabling the ingrowth of vascular and cellular connective tissue.

Zimmer’s Puros allografts are sterilized and preserved using the proprietary Tutoplast Process, which assures high standard of tissue safety and quality. The process preserves the valuable collagen matrix and tissue integrity while inactivating pathogens and gently removing unwanted materials such as ells, antigens and viruses. The result is safe, biocompatible tissue, as what have shown using the anoticel sej method.
