OraGraft® Cortical Plate
The shell technique involves using a thin plate of cortical bone, secured to host bone with at least two osteosynthesis screws, to create a biologic container that maintains the necessary space for bone graft particulates. The cortical plate functions as a stable, slowly resorbed material that can be used as a
substitute for autologous bone recovered from the mandibular shelf, eliminating the need for a second surgical site.
• Convenience: Ready to use out of the package, no need for rehydration. The graft is preserved using LifeNet Health’s proprietary Preservon® technology to maintain it in a hydrated state. Preservon-treated grafts have been shown to have strength similar to that of frozen grafts and greater than freeze-dried grafts.1
• Safety: Sterilized using patented and proprietary Allowash XG® technology, which provides a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6 without compromising the graft’s inherent osteoconductive properties.No need for a second surgical site.
• Osteoconductive: Natural bone matrix facilitates cell attachment and proliferation.
