Customized allogenic bone block
maxgraft® bonebuilder is a customized allogenic bone block for two-stage alveolar ridge augmentation. Based on CT/CBCT scans of the patient, the bone block is virtually designed using the latest 3D-CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology. The final product is then milled from processed cancellous bone blocks originating from living human donors (explantation of femoral heads during hip endoprosthesis surgery).
In clinical practice, the application of allogenic blocks has been established as a reliable alternative to autogenous bone blocks for alveolar ridge augmentation to avoid donor site morbidity1,2,3 and limitations in material quantity4.
maxgraft® bonebuilder offers greater precision and accuracy of fit compared to classical block augmentation. Manual adjustment of the block during the operation is seldom required and maxgraft® bonebuilder may be applied directly onto the defect, reducing surgery time as well as risk of infection.5,6 The individual design provides a precise fit between local bone and the allogenic bone block, enabling rapid revascularization and fast graft incorporation.7
