Better Cortical Cancellous Bone Grafts

At Surgikor, we place a premium on cancellous bone grafting material that meets the very highest standards – and offers your practice the lowest possible price.

This quick primer gives you all the information you need to understand and explain the biology behind cancellous bone grafts, beginning with a definition of cancellous bone, which is the spongier tissue inside the ends of most adult long bones:

The structure of the cancellous bone can be likened to a honeycomb that consists of interconnecting spaces containing the bone marrow. […] The marrow of cancellous bone tissue supplies osteoprogenitor cells that help in the formation and growth of new bone. Thus, bone grafts composed of cancellous bone are sometimes used in grafting procedures to promote osteogenesis.

Cancellous bone tissue is essential to many procedures in dental surgery which require the growth of new bone tissue. To learn more about our allograft bone grafts and the details of cortical cancellous materials for use in your practice, contact the dental surgery experts today.

One More Endorsement for Allograft Bone Grafting

We have cited this blog before, as it offers a uniquely lucid approach to many of the stickiest question in dental surgery. This recent answer covers the issue of bone grafting materials for dental implants and procedures, and ends with a simple distillation of the available options:

Q: The enhancement of healing of an extraction site can be done with many materials and sutures, including Gelfoam (maybe with a little tetracycline powder), collagen plug, Foundation bone enhancement by J. Morita, Bioplant by Kerr, grafting with bone material (allograft, autograft, xenograft), collagen membrane, and so on. It seems that dentists use code D7953 for any of those. My question: Is there more than one code for these procedures?

A: There is only one code, and the nomenclature says it is a bone graft for ridge preservation, so bone must be used. It can be an allograft or autograft.

The difference between these approaches is basic, of course: allografts come from other people, while autografts repurpose the body’s own bone tissue.

Our allograft kits represent the vanguard in dental surgery materials, offering vetted and sterile choices to help you heal faster and stronger. To review our full catalog of allograft bone grafting kits and materials, feel free to browse our site.

Allograft Bone Grafting Products Earn a Boost from FDA

As one of the nation’s foremost outlets for allograft bone grafting materials, we keep a close eye on how these premium products are being discussed in the medical community. Which is why it was edifying to see allograft materials highlighted in this recent news story on the FDA’s recommendations for younger patients:

The FDA suggested that health care professionals treating patients <18 years consider the use of alternatives, such as autograft bone, allograft bone, and bone graft substitutes that do not contain recombinant proteins or synthetic peptides. The FDA said providers who deem a bone graft substitute containing recombinant proteins and synthetic peptides as the best or only treatment option should inform the underage patient and his or her parents or guardians about the risks associated with the product, as well as closely monitor the patient for adverse events.

At issue is the use of recombinant proteins and artificial (synthetic) peptides, which may not heal or bond as well within younger mouths.

Allograft remains the industry standard in bone grafting approaches, which is why we are proud to offer some of the best deals in the industry for cutting edge kits. To learn more and get your hands on the very latest allograft products today, contact Surgikor here.
