It is an evergreen question in the field of dental surgery and implantology: are allografts safe?
It’s not hard to imagine why this concern comes up so often; to many people, the notion of receiving tissue from another person sounds like a transplant, even if that tissue is no longer living. Thankfully the answer is both simple and complete, as reported by the CDC:
Both FDBA and DFDBA materials are widely used in periodontal therapy and there are no reports of disease transmission during the 30-year history of using freeze-dried bone allografts. . . . It is important to note . . . that fresh-frozen and fresh allografts are not typically used in periodontal therapy. Also, when using FDBA and DFDBA, the delay in processing ensures adequate time for testing for potential pathogens.
