Types of bone grafts used in dehiscence or volume maintaining cases.
Most bone grafts are indicated for bony defects but their individual characteristic offer advantages in certain surgical cases. Based on this the clinician is best suited to chose the appropriate graft. You may want to use a putty (C-Blast Putty™) to help keep the graft material contained. If the issue is addressing the dehiscence, and if the patient is healthy and blood supply is not an issue, an allograft, such as Raptos®, is predictable and most commonly used. If maintaining volume is the priority, a xenograft such as THE Graft™ is a great option. It remodels as fast as an allograft and maintains great volume.
