In Search of the Ideal Grafting Material

Share this post

All the aforementioned materials have their advantages and disadvantages but none seem to fit the bill for an ideal putty type material that will regenerate new bone width with a simple, quick flap procedure and perform like a polyvinylsiloxane putty material. Grafton is not exactly putty, but it does work well after placement; Dynagraft is very similar. Loose granular demineralized cortical allograft is grainy and often requires a membrane to contain the particles. Has anyone found the ideal graft material that is so simple to use even a caveman can do it?
