What is DentoGen?
DentoGen is an FDA-approved medical-grade calcium sulfate hemihydrate for bone regeneration in dental applications, including dental implants. It is Bioresorbable and Osteoconductive, an Effective Hemostatic, Easy to Handle and Place , Acts as a Soft Tissue Barrier , Improves Implant Osseointegration , Cost-Effective
DentoGenTM Promotes Bone Regeneration in a Wide Range of Clinical Situations, Including: Post-extraction, Infra-osseous defects, Apicoectomy Root perforations, Open apices, Dehiscences and fenestrations, and Sinus lifts.
Extensive research and use have demonstrated that calcium sulfate hemihydrate enhances bone regeneration by releasing calcium ions which combine with phosphate ions from body fluid to form a calcium phosphate trellis, a bioactive and osteoconductive bone scaffold.
Bioresorbable and Osteoconductive
As it resorbs, a calcium phosphate lattice forms which serves as an excellent scaffold for new bone growth. Resorbs at a rate of approximately 1mm/week.
An effective hemostatic agent to help control bleeding. Sprinkle powder in defect to stop bleeding.
Easy to Handle and Place
Once DentoGenTM is mixed with the setting solution it is easily molded and placed into the defect.
Soft Tissue Barrier
Once DentoGenTM acts as a guided tissue regeneration material by preventing growth of soft tissue into bone defects.
Improves Implant Osseointegration
DentoGenTM can be used with dental implants to improve their osseointegration.
Often, the high cost of other graft materials discourages their utilization in large defects. DentoGenTM is cost effective even in large defects and performs well when combined with other graft materials like allograft or autograft.
DentoGen is an FDA approved medical grade calcium sulfate hemihydrate for bone regeneration in dental applications, including dental implants. It can also be used in combination with dental implants to improve their osseointegratation.
Calcium sulfate has a 110 years long history of use as a bone regeneration material. It has been extensively studied for bone regeneration purposes in many animal models and human clinical studies in the United States and Europe.
DentoGen is allowed for marketing by US FDA as a bone graft by itself, in combination with other bone graft materials and as a barrier membrane. In other words, you can graft with any material of choice and then layer DentoGen over the graft instead of having to fit a membrane fragment. It makes covering the graft much easier. In fact, after covering the graft site with DentoGen, primary closure is not required. This makes for an easier and more cost effective bone grafting procedure.
Example Uses for Dental Implants
Dehiscence and fenestrations: reconstruct the bone continuity with DentoGen. Allow it to harden using the FAST SET liquid and suture.
Mini sinus lifting: before inserting the implant, fill the bone area with DentoGen, pressing with an appropriate instrument and pushing the material so that the membrane is raised. Then insert the implant.
Great sinus lifting: DentoGen can be used as a single implant material or as a matrix mixed with autologous or heterologous bone.
Fresh Socket Filling around dental implants: DentoGen can be used post-extraction as described above with immediate placement of an endosseous implant.
