cerabone®

THE NATURAL BOVINE BONE GRAFT

 

cerabone® is a natural bovine bone grafting material that is the material of choice for a high number of dentists. By today, more than 800.000 patients have been successfully treated with cerabone® in more than 90 countries. It is a highly reliable, long-term stable and particularly safe bone substitute. Due to the strong hydrophilicity of the surface, a mix of cerabone® with blood or physiological saline solution provides a suitable stickiness for optimal moldability and contouring

SPECIFICATIONS & FACTS

CERABONE® IS A RELIABLE, LONG-TERM STABLE AND PARTICULARLY SAFE BONE SUBSTITUTE

 

cerabone® is derived from the mineral phase of bovine bone, which shows a high resemblance to human bone regarding surface porosity and chemical composition [1]. It is a mineral scaffold possessing a 3-dimensional pore network that allows fast penetration and adsorption of blood and serum proteins. The unique manufacturing process based on high temperature heating at > 1200 °C reliably removes all organic components [2,3,4,5] and even inactivates prions [6], therefore minimizing the risk of immunological reactions or disease transmission. Both product and production process are fulfilling the German and EU-regulatory and security requirements for bovine bone grafts including DIN EN ISO 22422-1, DIN EN ISO 22442-2 and DIN EN ISO 22442-3.

PROPERTIES

– Proven natural bovine bone substitute with high long-term volume stability
– 100% pure biologic bone apatite
– Highest possible safety due to high temperature treatment
– Highly interconnected osteoconductive scaffold
– Rough surface favouring optimal cell adhesion and blood absorption
– Easy handling

INDICATIONS

Generally, the high stability of cerabone® makes it the ideal choice in cases where long-term stability is important.
