Puros® Block Allograft
Clinicians around the globe have counted on the Puros family of allografts for hard- and soft-tissue augmentation procedures for years.
Changing The Concept Of Block Grafting
By eliminating the need to harvest an autogenous block graft, Puros Block Allografts may save time and help to reduce pain and can shorten the patient’s rehabilitation period.
- Shelf-life: Five (5) years
The Proprietary Tutoplast® Process
The proprietary Tutoplast process assures the highest standard of tissue quality with minimal risk of disease transmission.8
That’s why, for over 40 years, Tutoplast processed tissues have been used in more than five million procedures.8
- A clinically documented solution for effectively restoring volume to severely resorbed ridges2,3,18
- Outcomes have been comparable to those generally reported for autogenous block grafting, but without the need for a second surgery to harvest bone19-21
- Clinical reports have documented the ability to stabilize implants 5 to 6 months after grafting2,3,18
- Retains osseoconductive properties due to the preservation of the natural bone matrix collagen and mineral composition, trabecular pattern and original porosity2,3
* Cancellous bone has been shown to remodel faster than sintered bovine bone.
