Compressible human cancellous bone

Compressible human cancellous bone | Dental Implant and Bone Regeneration | Scoop.it

100% human cancellous bone that has been demineralized to provide a value-added benefit over other allografts. The demineralization process assists with two functions: 1) it makes the product compressible so it is ideal for surgeons to obtain a press-fit, precise placement of the graft; and 2) it exposes the native growth factors and bone morphogenic proteins that are essential to induce new bone formation
