Zimmer Dental., a provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, has announced the availability of Puros Cortico-Cancellous Particulate Allograft. The product is an anatomic-based mixture of cortical and cancellous bone, designed to provide clinicians with a way to simplify the grafting process. Composed of 70% cortical and 30% cancellous bone, Puros Cortico-Cancellous does not require on-site mixing. It retains its osteoconductive properties due to the preservation of the natural bone matrix collagen and mineral composition, trabecular pattern, and original porosity. The particulate mixture’s quick hydration, five-year shelf life, and room-temperature storage requirement also add to its ease of use while two available size options are intended to conveniently accommodate various defect dimensions. Related information, click here. Each single donor vial of the bone grafting material has been sterilized and preserved with the proprietary Tutoplast Process, which hesps ensures tissue safety and quality with little risk of disease transmission. This process, used for more than 40 years and in more than three million procedures, preserves the valuable collagen matrix and tissue integrity while inactivating pathogens and gently removing unwanted materials such as cells, antigens, and viruses. “Zimmer Dental continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to improving patients’ lives,” said Harold C. Flynn Jr., Zimmer Dental president. “With Puros Cortico-Cancellous Particulate Allograft, we have truly combined the best of both worlds. This bone grafting, hard-tissue solution resolves an unmet need among clinicians who previously had to create their own mixtures chairside. By providing world-class dental implants, tried-and-true restorative options, and cutting-edge regenerative offerings, we give clinicians the flexibility to serve their patients with the most comprehensive portfolio in the industry.” For more information, contact a Zimmer Dental sales consultant or customer service at (800) 854-7019, or visit www.zimmerdental.com.
