Glidewell Laboratories, a provider of dental laboratory services and intraoral medical devices, recently unveiled the Newport Biologics™ line of bone grafting products.

Featuring allograft and alloplast bone graft options, as well as resorbable barrier membranes and a collagen-based wound dressing, this product line is reportedly aimed at increasing clinician access to top-quality regenerative materials for use in cases marked by bone or soft tissue deficiencies.

Careful selection

Newport Biologics’ products are reportedly carefully selected for the dental practice and processed in accordance with rigorous U.S. FDA regulations. The allograft materials are sourced from the University of Miami Tissue Bank and resorbable membranes are engineered to optimize handling characteristics.
