BEGO OSS

The classic choice

BEGO OSS is a bovine bone substitute material with which the natural properties of the bone tissue are retained. Targeted modifications of the initial bone result in a bone substitute material which achieves rapid integration in patients' own newly formed vital bone.
All organic components are removed by means of sintering to leave only the mineral phase of the bone. BEGO OSS meets the most stringent safety standards for xenogeneic bone substitute material. BEGO OSS features an interconnecting pore system which combines a high degree of porosity with simultaneous mechanical stability. The BEGO OSS 3D pore system is a highly complex network in which the macroporous dimensions of natural bone are preserved in order to ensure the optimal recruitment of bone cells. Micropores generate strong capillary forces for the complete penetration of BEGO OSS with blood. The nanoporous hydrophilic surface is ideal for binding highly effective proteins to BEGO OSS. The BEGO OSS properties have been optimised to achieve a high level of de novo osteogenesis. 

Indications

Properties

  • Osteoconductive
  • Interconnecting pore system
  • Rough, hydrophilic surface
  • Long-lasting volume stability

Advantages for you

  • Handling: Can be mixed with blood, sterile saline solution and autogenous bone grafts, when wet a structured mass is produced for absorbing and contouring
  • Patient acceptance: Volume preservation prevents treatment delays, high-temperature treatment eliminates organic components and thus the risk of immune reactions and the transmission of diseases
  • Techniques: All common GBR techniques in combination with a barrier membrane
