Shell technique with maxgraft® cortico
maxgraft® cortico is a prefabricated cortical bone plate from post-mortem human donor bone, that can be used for the shell technique. The concept of the shell technique is the preparation of a biological container, which creates the necessary space for the full incorporation of particulated bone graft material to rebuild new bone for dental implant placement. maxgraft® cortico was developed to avoid the donor-site morbidity and to prevent the time-consuming harvesting and splitting of autogenous intra-oral bone blocks. It functions as non-native, avital cortical plate that is firmly integrated for optimal stabilization of the particulated augmentation material.
