GEM Bone Graft
- Highly porous—more space available for new bone deposition
- Carbonate apatite structure similar to natural bone mineral
- Rough surface—facilitates cell adhesion and spread for bone ingrowth
- Available in jar or delivery syringe
GEM Bone Graft is an osteoconductive, porous, anorganic, natural bone mineral with carbonate apatite structure derived from porcine cancellous bone. It is intended for use in oral surgical procedures involving bone repair and regeneration such as reconstructive treatment of the alveolar ridge; elevation of the maxillary sinus floor; filling of extraction sockets; periodontal defects; defects after root resection; apicoectomy; and cystectomy.
The material porosity (or void space) and structure are two parameters that we have optimized in the development of these bone graft matrices. Maximizing the porosity of the material allows for increased void space available for bone regeneration and ingrowth. The material structure of carbonate apatite, being similar to the mineral structure of natural bone, supports and facilitates remodeling of the new bone.
