    A: No primary closure is necessary when grafting extraction sites with the Osteogen Plugs. This is the biggest benefit of the Osteogen plug – no membrane required when grafting extraction sites (Please remember that: The OsteoGen Plug was designed to be used in sockets with four walls. If the buccal plate is missing, it is likely that a membrane will be required). The most commonly used socket preservation technique is the “mineralized bone plug” technique made popular by Hom Lay Wang (although there are a dozens of similar techniques). The basic premise is that you fill the site with graft and cover with a collagen plug. With the OsteoGen Plug, it’s the graft and plug in one, so just put the plug into place and suture over top.

    A:

    Yes, the OsteoGen Plug can be easily cut for smaller sockets  After it is cut, the clinician can roll it between his/her fingers, if additional contouring is necessary.  Additionally, the plug can be moistened slightly for easier shaping.

    A:

    The OsteoGen Plug was designed to be used in sockets with four walls.  If the buccal plate is missing, it is likely that a membrane will be required.  A sustained resorption membrane (4-6 months resorption time) should be sufficient in this situation.
