When is Bone Formation necessary?

Following tooth extractions


Bone defects occur following tooth extractions. The defect will heal untreated. Filling the wound (free from inflammation) with the bone grafting material NanoBone® supports the body’s own healing process. The bone lost as a result of the extraction is thus regenerated and the original shape of the jawbone is retained.


To stabilize implants


An implant is a synthetic root to which a synthetic crown can be attached. Implants require strong and stable underlying bone tissue to keep them secure. Once teeth have been missing for a prolonged period of time, the jawbone shrinks and no longer provides a suitable basis for an implant. NanoBone® stabilizes and strengthens the underlying bone tissue and makes an implant possible.


In periodontics


Periodontal diseases are caused by inflammation of the gums. In the long-term, they lead to bone degeneration; loosening of the teeth is also often symptomatic. There is a wide range of possible reconstructive measures. A surgical alternative is to correct larger pockets by filling them with the bone grafting material NanoBone®


Following cystectomy



NanoBone® ensures the tooth can be preserved following the removal of a cyst. The jawbone is kept stable by filling the resulting cavity in the bone with the bone grafting material. This allows rapid bone regeneration.
