When Richard Kraut, DDS, who is the Department of Dentistry Chairman at Montefiore Medical School, drew up his ?wish list?? of desired properties in vertical bone augmentation materials, topping the list were materials that were easy to use and well tolerated by the oral mucosa. The answer to Dr. Kraut?s wish list, he said, presented itself in the form of Zimmer Dental?s newest product, the CurV. Designed to retain graft material during ridge augmentation, this biocompatible, resorbable collagen membrane is pre-shaped for custom molding to the defect site. It is designed to retain Zimmer?s Puros Particulate Allograft when fixated with conventional methods. Dr. Kraut said he had the opportunity to work with the material before its official release to the profession.
