What is Biocal?
Medical-grade, highly purified calcium sulfate material designed to be used in osteoconduction. Promotes wound healing, inhibits nonosteogenic cells, and is completely resorbable. Combines well with other grafting material and is easy to set up and place.
Extensive research and use have demonstrated that calcium sulfate hemihydrate enhances bone regeneration by releasing calcium ions which combine with phosphate ions from body fluid to form a calcium phosphate trellis, a bioactive and osteoconductive bone scaffold.
Bioresorbable and Osteoconductive
As it resorbs, a calcium phosphate lattice forms which serves as an excellent scaffold for new bone growth. Resorbs at a rate of approximately 1mm/week.
An effective hemostatic agent to help control bleeding. Sprinkle powder in defect to stop bleeding.
Easy to Handle and Place
Once calcium sulfate (Biocal) is mixed with the setting solution it is easily molded and placed into the defect.
Soft Tissue Barrier
Calcium Sulfate acts as a guided tissue regeneration material by preventing growth of soft tissue into bone defects.
Often, the high cost of other graft materials discourages their utilization in large defects. Biocal TM is cost effective even in large defects and performs well when combined with other graft materials like allograft or autograft.
