Bone regeneration with botiss biomaterials: cerabone®, maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal®

Why do I need bone replacement material?

Via the root, our teeth are deep-seated in the jaw bone. This gives the teeth the necessary stability for biting and chewing. Infections and loss of teeth can lead to degeneration of the bone substance. Consequently, the stability of the remaining teeth decreases which in turn leads to a tremendous impairment of the quality of our dentition. Bone replacement for the formation of new bone can thwart against this process.

Especially the replacement of missing teeth with implants requires a strong bone matrix. The implant can be placed only after a successful osteogenesis so that the quality of the dentition can be restored.

For the formation of new bone, your attending dentist recommends the use of a bone replacement substance of strictly biological origin like cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic).


Why does your dentist recommend a bone replacement substance of strictly biological origin like cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic) for the formation of new bone?

It is much easier for our body to regenerate new bone from our own bone substance. Therefore, many times bone is harvested from another site of the body and transplanted to the primary operation site. The disadvantage of this procedure is obvious: A second wound is inflicted with the well-known disadvantages (e.g. pain, anaesthesia, costs).

Focus should be the use of a material that is closest to endogenous bone but does not require a second operation.

botiss biomaterials is offering natural bone substances. cerabone® is attained from carefully controlled bovine bone and its matrix is very similar to endogenous bone or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject disease transmission. In all cases the body is provided with biological bone substance, which can be transformed in viable bone.


What happens to botiss biomaterials in your body?

Because the structure of the cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic) is very similar to your own bone, it is used as conduction from your body to regenerate new bone. After implantation, the cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic) is “re-populated” step by step by newly formed bone and parallel the cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) or maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic) is degraded. The duration of the remodelling process last approximately 3 to 9 Months and highly depends on many factors.


Are botiss biomaterials safe materials for implantation?

cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) is carefully attained from bovine bone. A health certificate issued from an official veterinarian and a BSE-test exists for each donor animal. The source tissue has been treated with the high temperature process. The process ensures sterility and antigenicity of the material on the one hand, and preserves the favourable features of natural bone substance at the same time. cerabone® (bovine bone/xenograft) is produced in Germany by specially trained and experienced staff. The tissue underlies strict quality- and safety controls throughout the entire process. (CE-certification according to the latest directives). maxresorb®, maxresorb® inject and perossal® (alloplastic/synthetic) are 100% synthetic bone replacement substances, fulfilling the newest and highest safety EU and CE standards and directives.


Are there any other alternatives for you?

Alternatives, instead of using botiss biomaterials, are the already mentioned transplantation of endogenous bone. Aside, there are other bone replacements of animal or synthetic origin with different structural and biological characteristics.


Your attending dentist will inform you of the advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives for botiss biomaterials.
