Putting EthOss in Different Spots – Prof Dr David Ngeow

About the webinar:
Synthetic bone graft materials have previously been reported to be inferior in comparison to allograft and xenograft materials. One of the problems of synthetic bone graft is volume resorption, which causes the grafted site to become less stable. The introduction of calcium sulphate-based synthetic bone grafts address some of these issues; in addition, one great advantage of EthOss bone graft material is the ability to remove the use of a resorbable membrane. In this presentation, Prof. Dr. Ngeow shares his experience of placing EthOss in different spots, namely extraction sockets, dehiscence and fenestration, tenting and pathological sites.
