Macrobone is a high porosity synthetic bone substitute (around 90% of porosity) designed for filling bone defects during dental and maxillofacial surgery. It is made from pure tricalcium phosphate (ß-TCP) completely and rapidly resorbable. The shapes of Macrobone granules solve problems related to filling of irregular-shaped cavities. Macrobone reduces the need for autologous sampling and surgery time.
Macrobone is made from pure and resorbable tricalcium phosphate (ß-TCP) which is a bioactive calcium phosphate salt. It is more soluble than hydroxyapatite in a biological field and very similar to the mineral phase of human bone.
Totally resorbable, it will be replaced in 6 or 7 months by the neo-formed bone.
Macrobone is fully synthetic, there are no immune or infectious risks
The TCP granules are radiopaque, so cavity filling and graft integration can be radiologically monitored.
Low temperature processing technique allows ideal, natural surface topograph, the same as human bone, stimulating osteoblast activity. Vitrification phenomenon caused by high temperature process has been completely controlled.
