The Osteogen Bone Block is a malleable block that can be used for onlay grafting and ridge augmentation procedures. It is adaptable to the contours of defect site. Similar to the Osteogen Plug and Osteogen Strip, the Osteogen Bone Block infuses the bone graft into the collagen, eliminating the hassle and time spent mixing and packing particulate grafts while also eliminating the potential for graft wash out.
|Questions and Answers|
Thanks for your questions.
Yes, you need to use screws to keep it in place per the video. Not only do the screws help to keep the block in place, but they also are used to tent up the membrane and maintain space. This is key, otherwise everything will collapse.
As for vertical augmentation, yes, you can use for that, as well.
In terms of size, we have only one size on block right now. However, it is malleable, so you can squish down or cut.
Hope this helps.
Yes. You should be using a membrane with the Osteogen Block Graft. We recommend a standard collagen membrane. As shown in the product video, other clinicians have had success, as well with a PRF membrane.
It takes around 5 to 6 months generally for this block to convert to bone. Healing is faster in a socket because there are 5 walls of bone surrounding the defect. In an onlay graft procedure, the host bone cells are only coming from one source, so it takes a bit longer to heal. Essentially, you are asking the body to do a lot more work compared to a socket. Hope this helps. Let us know, if you have any additional questions.
