Demineralized Sponge Allograft Strip (10x7x7)

$135.00
SKU AT696FD

Our DBM Sponge Strip sized at 10x7x7 is a unique graft material derived from trabecular bone that has compressible and elastic sponge-like properties. Our demineralization process revolutionizes the handling properties of bone while maintaining natural growth factors.

  • Soft and pliable for easy manipulation
  • Doesn’t typically require screw or pin fixation
  • Won’t perforate soft tissue and cause exposure-related complication
  • Horizontal Ridge Augmentations
  • Vertical Ridge Augmentations
  • Extraction sockets
  • Periodontal defects
  • In conjunction with the placement of dental implants
 
Demineralized allograft bone with osteoinductive activity
Demineralized bone matrices are prepared by acid extraction of allograft bone, resulting in a loss of the majority of the mineralized components with retention of collagen and the noncollagenous proteins, including growth factors. The efficacy of a demineralized bone matrix (DBM) as a bone-graft substitute or extender may be related to the total amount of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) present, and the ratios of the different BMPs present. BMPs belong to the transforming growth factor (TGF) superfamily of proteins.
 
DBM Sponge Strips have the open, porous structure of cancellous bone while also being compressible and elastic, with the properties of a sponge. It can be compressed to 1/3 of its original size in order to t a space. It then springs back to ll the void without losing its original strength or shape. It is a perfect solution for filling a variety of bone voids. 
 
DBM Sponge Strips, when implanted, may induce at the locus of the implant the full developmental cascade of endochondral bone formation including vascularization, mineralization, and bone marrow differentiation. Strips may be used with osteogeneic promoters such as bone marrow or platelet rich plasma.
