Ultradent to Distribute OsteoGen Dental Bone Grafting Plug

This dental bone grafting plug from Impladent prepares for implant placement, and is now being distributed by Ultradent.

Ultradent has announced that it is now distributing the OsteoGen® Plug, a dental bone grafting plug from Impladent.

The OsteoGen Plus is a dental bone grafting plug combining non-ceramic bioactive resorbable calcium apatite crystals with Type I bovine achilles tendon collagen matrix. Calcium apatite crystals create bone-like structure. It is resorbable so as to be easily replaced by host bone tissue within months, according to a press release from Ultradent. While radiolucent when placed, the OsteoGen plug becomes radiopaque within 3-5 months after replacement. After this process the implant can then be placed.

Ultradent develops and manufactures a variety of dental materials, devices, and instruments. The OsteoGen Plus is manufactured by Impladent in Jamaica, New York.
