PRINCETON, N.J., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever since its global market debut thirty years ago, Geistlich Bio-Oss®, a bone substitute utilized in periodontal and oral surgery procedures to regenerate lost bone in the oral cavity, has demonstrated clinical efficacy, long-term implant survival rates and predictability, all backed by scientific publications and investigations. "Geistlich Bio-Oss® 1 g meets the need for an extended product range! Additional flexibility in Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) therapy for excellent long-term outcomes and stable esthetic results!" said Prof. Matteo Chiapasco from Milan, Italy. The addition of Geistlich Bio-Oss® 1 g provides a convenient new size that bridges the gap between small and large procedures.
Geistlich Bio-Oss®, derived from bovine bone, preserves the native crystalline structure, which is highly similar to human bone, through unique, patented technology. This manufacturing process ensures the vital building blocks are present to promote the initial biologic processes of cell adhesion and proliferation. The slow resorbing nature of Geistlich Bio-Oss® is a desirable characteristic providing long-term volume preservation. As the body recognizes and accepts these native crystalline structures, the particles become fully integrated into living bone.
