Support for bone regeneration
Bone tissue is endowed with a great potential for regeneration. In fact, it is the only tissue of our body able to repair fractures or local defects with no visible scar. Nevertheless, the defects to be repaired are often too wide, therefore support is necessary. All fillers for bone substitution of OsteoBiol® line (Gen-Os®, mp3®, Putty, Gel 40) act as a scaffold to guide the growth of bone tissue into the defect site. The intimate xenogenic bone structure, similar to the natural one of human bone in terms of matrix and porosity, is not altered during the manufacturing process, providing perfect support for bone regeneration and contributing to restore with newly formed bone the original shape and volume of the defect.
After grafting the filler, the bone defect is stabilized and protected by an OsteoBiol® membrane (Evolution), able to make wound healing easier and to protect the site from eventual attack by bacteria, for example in case of suture breakdown or loss. Moreover, during the regeneration phase, the membrane separates the bone tissue during the regeneration phase from gingival tissues, endowed with higher proliferation rate, which, in the absence of a barrier, would invade the space that will and should be occupied by regenerated bone.
