Timeline for placing implants after a bone graft procedure.
There is no easy answer to your question about grafting materials (Raptos®, C-Blast Putty™, Eclipse™ or PentOS OI™ Putty) for use in ridge preservation/implant site development.
This depends on the time frame in which you want to restore the site, patient health status, social, emotional, religious bias against certain materials, materials approved for use in your market.
Another factor that will influence your decision is the timeline. When do you want to place an implant? 4 to 6 months, 1 to 2 years or more?
Our most popular socket graft material is Raptos cortico-cancellous allograft blend particles in a syringe. This formulation can be used in sites that will be restored within 4-18 months.
For long term socket preservation, our most popular solution is THE Graft™, xenograft particles in a syringe or vial. THE Graft has shown ridge bone volume maintenance for as long as 5 years or even more.
