PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Expanding upon its leading position providing dental biomaterials used in oral and periodontal surgeries, Geistlich Pharma North America, Inc. (www.geistlich-na.com) has launched a line of bone harvesting instruments used for the safe and efficient collection of autogenous bone. Autogenous grafts have long been considered ideal for guided bone regeneration procedures as they present osteoconductive, osteoinductive and osteogenic potential.1
However alone, autogenous bone is subject to resorption resulting in a lack of long-term volume preservation that could negatively impact the ability for optimal implant placement and compromise esthetics.2,3 Combined with Geistlich Bio-Oss®, autogenous bone works in synchronicity and provides volume preservation along with the ideal regenerative properties of autogenous bone.
