The angled bone scraper, allows harvesting of autogenous, vital bone, in large or small amounts from any surface. Autogenous bone is considered the gold standard and has several advantages over other augmentation techniques including short healing times, favorable bone quality, lower material costs, no risk of disease transmission or antigenicity, and predictability in the repair of larger defects or greater atrophy.
If you are tired of harvesting bone shavings with a scraper that won’t stay sharp, then it’s time you tried the Angled Bone Scraper. There’s no easier way to precisely harvest bone in an atraumatic manner.
The 360º blade is marked into four sections. As the blade starts to dull, you can expose a new cutting surface by simply twisting the blade with any .050 hex driver. And the improved angle allows easier access to greater number of harvesting sites. If you’ve never used an angled scraper, you won’t believe how much easier it is to use than a straight bone scraper. The secret is to hold the angled Glider at a 35 degree angle on the ridge.
Bone Scraper Features
- Easy slide bone trap for bone retrieval
- Collect up to 2.5cc of graft material
- Sharp circular blade for 360° of harvesting
- Never a dull blade – expose a new cutting surface with 90° twist of any .050 hex driver
Bone Scraper Benefits
- Ergonomic design and simple collection chamber
Integrated System Rapidly Cuts, Collects And Delivers. Improved handling of harvesting graft with simple slide of bone trap, and angled to allow access to greater number of harvesting sites. Recommended for the ramus, symphasis and tuberosity areas.
- Bone is collected with coagulated blood
Since the bone is collected with coagulated blood, it displays a high biological plasticity shortly after it is harvested. This makes the graft extremely easy to handle and mold.
- Superior harvesting method
Since the bone scraper harvests the bone manually, the graft's cellular vitality is maintained , with no risk of potentially overheating bone. Bone shavings harvested with the angled bone scraper have the porosity and low density to allow angiogenesis.
The disposable scraper is sterile and individually packaged for single patient use. There is therefore no risk of contamination between patients, and the chance of disease transmission is eliminated. Clean up is easy and fast.
