Sunstar Americas recently announced a new extension to its guided bone regeneration portfolio with the introduction of GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System.

Designed with technology that enables the material to be syringed directly into a bone defect, GUIDOReasy-graft is the first bone grafting material that hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in minutes and reportedly may reduce the need for a dental membrane. Cleared for a wide range of indications, GUIDOR easy-graft is a fully resorbable bone grafting material ideally suited for socket preservation after tooth extraction and implant packing.

“Both preserving the bone after tooth extraction and implant success are well documented,” said Richard Demke, DDS, Senior Director of Technology and New Product Development at Sunstar Americas. “GUIDOR easy-graft is designed for ease of use and provides a predictable way to maintain alveolar bone.”

In addition to preserving bone after tooth extraction, the porosity of the material reportedly supports bone regeneration. A network of pores inside and outside each granule allow the uptake of blood required for new bone formation. Complete resorption of the material occurs in as little as 5 months.

Comprised of coated synthetic granules in a syringe and a liquid activator, the GUIDOR easy-graft o material hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in minutes when in contact with fluids such as blood.This brief delay allows practitioners time to pack and shape the material to the contours of the defect before hardening occurs. 

“Preparing and placing bone grafting materials shouldn’t be complex,” continues Dr. Demke. “This complete system helps practitioners provide more predictable clinical results.”

The GUIDOR easy-graft system provides easy-to-follow steps for preparation and placement while eliminating the need to guess with which liquid (e.g. blood, saline) to mix the granules. Placing the material is analogous to placing amalgam, a technique with which dentists are already familiar. Additionally, the material’s capability to harden into a stable, porous scaffold gives clinicians the opportunity to choose whether a membrane is required. In fact, 87% of clinicians surveyed in Germany said they use GUIDOR easy-graft because they did not need a membrane in many cases.

Offered at an affordable price, GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System provides dentists an economical way to address expensive bone grafting procedures.  GUIDOR easy-graft is available in a range of sizes to efficiently graft a tooth extraction site. Each sterilized unit contains three single-use applications.

Starting November 10, the system will be offered directly from Sunstar by calling 1-877-484-3671, and will be available for purchase at the Greater New York Dental Meeting at booth #3828.
