WHAT IS A DECORTICATION DRILL?

A reusable drill explicitly designed to efficiently and safely decorticate the bone site ready prior to graft placement.

WHY DECORTICATE?

Bone bed decortication allows quick progenitor cell in-fill and accelerates angiogenesis. The physical connection between graft and recipient site is also improved.

EVIDENCE FOR DECORTICATION

Quick healing requires a stable bone graft as well as one providing a scaffold and cellular interaction or induction*.  In addition, Buser et al 1996, advised that ‘recipient bone must be perforated to allow contact between the medullary space of the host bone and graft’. Misch 95 and 96; Vasconcelos & Carvalho 2000, reported that ‘graft success depends on good blood supply and revascularisation’ and that ‘perforations of the recipient site induces revascularization resulting in an increase in the influx of osteogenic cells, improving the union of the graft with the recipient area’  

 


*WHY POWERBONE DENTAL PUTTY?

*Powerbone Dental Putty provides all the key features described above. It is a form-stable, fully resorbing, synthetic bone scaffold that needs no membrane for stabilisation.

  • Perfect handling

    • Used without mixing, direct from the syringe

    • Easily moulded to match defect morphology

  • No membrane is needed for stabilisation

    • Perfect stability and resilience to micromovement – unlike calcium sulphate cement which can wash away

  • Premium Performance

    • ‘significantly enhanced bone regeneration compared to β-TCP’ (3,4)

    • ‘biomechanically, radiographically, and histologically equivalence to autograft (7)

Powerbone Putty resorbs completely in line with bone healing making it perfect for 3 walled GBR defects, Sinus Lift, Minimum intervention protocols and one-stage simultaneous graft and implant placement- especially associated with early loading (c12 weeks).


UNIQUE FORMULATION 

  • Contains a highly porous form of Silicate Substituted βeta-Tricalcium Phosphate (Peer-reviewed over 12 years) developed by St Marys University, London.

  • Cellulose (HPMC) viscoelastic carrier.

  • Supplemented with trace ZrO2 (0.1%) for antibacterial efficacy and radiopacity.

PREMIUM PERFORMANCE 

  • Highly porous matrix (c70%) enabling rapid revascularisation and excellent space for new bone across the entire three-dimensional structure.

  • Induces angiogenesis and fast apatite formation (1,2,5).

  • Greater bone fusion and significantly enhance bone regeneration compared to pure β-TCP. (3,4)

  • Comparisons to rhBMP-2 in terms of bone growth and fusion (7)

  • Biomechanically, radiographically, and histologically equivalence to autograft (7)

EASY APPLICATION – WITHOUT MIXING OR WASH-OUT UNLIKE CEMENT-BASED ALTERNATIVES

RADIOPAQUE FOR CLEAR FOLLOW-UP

Resorption of all Powerbone grafts can be followed easily on x-ray – an important feature compared to standard β-TCP which can be difficult to detect at review.
