EthOss is a material used in bone grafting procedures. It is a white granular powder, which becomes a paste when it is mixed with sterile saline. This paste is then applied to the area where more bone is needed. The EthOss encourages rapid bone regrowth and is completely absorbed as it is replaced with new healthy bone.
EthOss is absorbed quickly – within 12 weeks up to half of the material should be replaced by your bone (the exact rate varies from patient to patient). The remaining material will be completely absorbed over the following months. This quick performance will help speed up your entire implant procedure.
EthOss is a completely synthetic product made without any human or animal bone. It is an advanced biomaterial comprised of Beta Tricalcium Phosphate and Calcium Sulphate. Both of these materials have a long history of use in medicine and are trusted and respected by the dental community.
As a biocompatible material, EthOss is designed to work with your body’s natural healing processes. Feedback from our customers suggests that this helps to reduce pain and swelling following a grafting procedure.
