Frequently Asked Questions
OsteoLife Biomedical is a leading distributor of dental bone graft materials and actively participates in the Research and Development of allogeneic bone for dental grafts. Below please find some of the most common questions our customers ask.
Allogeneic bone is bone tissue harvested from and used for the same species and is commonly used for bone grafting. Human-to-human and bird-to-bird are two examples of how allogeneic bone could be used. Bovine bone tissue (from cows) used for humans would be non-allogeneic.
Dental bone graft procedures are most often performed in order to restore the alveolar ridge (the area that holds sockets of teeth) to its original form and integrity following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. It is also performed to maintain the strength and capacity of the ridge after a tooth extraction.
Tooth implants, specifically, require that the bone at the implant location to be in sufficient density and quality.
Allogeneic bone is often the preferred material used in tooth implantation as it has been well documented, proven to withstand the stress of implantation and it has an excellent safety record. Allogeneic bone is accessible in unlimited quantities and can be harvested in a single procedure.
Allogeneic bone comes from deceased human tissue donors, obtained with their voluntary prior consent. The bone material is tested and screened to ensure viability and safety and then sterilized and inspected before it is packaged and sent to dental professionals.
Once the allogeneic bone is transplanted into a new host, it works with the body to become new living bone and to support and fortify both the alveolar ridge (the area that holds sockets of teeth) and the surrounding teeth.
