Bone graft delivers easy handling and can eliminate the need for dental membrane
SCHAUMBURG, ILLINOIS, June 10, 2016— Sunstar Americas announced that it has expanded the purchasing options for its GUIDOR® easy-graft® Alloplastic Bone Grafting System by making it available through a network of 28 authorized U.S. dental dealers.
Launched in late 2014 and capable of being syringed directly into a bone defect, GUIDOR easy-graft is the patented1 bone grafting material that hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in minutes. Additionally, its ability to harden into a stable, porous scaffold allows clinicians to choose whether a membrane is required. GUIDOR easy-graft is a fully resorbable bone grafting material ideally suited for socket preservation after tooth extraction and implant packing. While the product should not be used in pregnant or nursing women, it is cleared for a wide range of indications.
“GUIDOR easy-graft provides excellent ease of use and a consistent way to maintain alveolar bone,” said Paquita Poindexter, Senior Marketing Manager at Sunstar Americas. “In addition, the porosity of the material supports bone regeneration through a network of pores inside and outside each granule. This network of pores allows the clot to stabilize and provide space for development of subsequent new vessels that are required for new bone formation.”
Offered at an affordable price, GUIDOR easy-graft CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System provides dentists an economical way to address expensive bone grafting procedures. GUIDOR easy-graft is available in a range of sizes to efficiently graft a tooth extraction site. Each sterilized unit contains three single-use applications.
“Preparing and placing bone grafting materials needn’t be complex,” added Ms. Poindexter. “The complete GUIDOR easy-graft system makes it easier for practitioners to provide more consistent clinical results. And now our network of professional dental dealers will make it easier for practitioners to purchase this highly innovative system.”
