Puros  Puros Cancellous Particulate Allograft

Puros Cancellous Particulate Allograft*

Trabecular Metal Cases

Puros Cancellous Particulate Allograft has become the bone grafting material of choice for many clinicians due to its history of well-documented clinical results. Puros Cancellous Particles act as an osteoconductive scaffold for new bone formation.1-2 Puros Cancellous Particles have, in large-volume applications, documented faster bone regeneration at 6 months than grafts containing sintered bovine bone matrix.3-4 In small-volume applications, regeneration of hard bone has been reported as early as 3-5 months.5-7 Puros Cancellous Particulate Allografts have shown successful results in:

  • Regeneration of periodontal bone and furcation defects1-2
  • Osseous defect regeneration1-2,4-7
  • Regeneration of extraction sockets5-6
  • Regeneration of gaps around block grafts5-8
  • Horizontal alveolar crest augmentation5-8
  • Sinus augmentation3-4
