What are the alternatives?

One alternative to NanoBone® is to take endogenous bone from other parts of the skeleton (e.g. the hips or chin) and implant it in the defect.The disadvantages of this method for you are the larger operative field and the need for a second operation.The bone substitute material NanoBone® is a synthetic alternative thanks to which a second operation can be completely avoided.

 

  

There are other bone substitute materials on the market manufactured from chemical or animal products. These, however, have different biological characteristics.
