Dental β-Tricalcium Phosphate Product (Available for Private Label Manufacturing)
Short Product Description
- Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate (β-TCP) synthetic bone void filler granulate – Meets the requirements of ASTM F1088
- Osteoconductive matrix that bone bonds directly providing an excellent scaffold for bony infiltration
- Granules have multidirectional porous structure similar to cancellous bone which provides a favorable structure for bony infiltration – approximately 80 % porous
- High surface microporosity allows for the wicking of fluids and bony deposition
- Interconnected macroposity facilitates cellular mediation to assist in proliferation of new bone growth
- Cellular activity on the highly porous surfaces of the granules allows for resorption so that the β – TCP is gradually replaced by new bone formation
- Synthetic β –TCP use eliminates the risk of disease transmission associated with allografts (human tissue)
- Available in four particle sizes (250µm to 500µm, 250µm to 1000µm, 500µm to 1000µm, 1000µm to 2000µm) and 0.5cc’s to 3cc’s of material
Indication for Use: β-TCP is indicated for use as a bone grafting material to fill, augment, or reconstruct periodontal or oral/maxillofacial defects.
