GEN-OS GR 1.0
A natural replicate of autologous bone, Gen-Os conserves the same intimate structures (matrix and porous form) and presents a highly osteoconductive properties. It is biocompatible and bioavailable, as recognized by tests made according to the ISO 10993 method conducted at Eurofins Biolab.
Gen-Os is gradually resorbable and provides support in bone neoformation helping to preserve the original graft shape and volume (osteoconductive property) .
Moreover, thanks to its collagen content, the product facilitates blood clotting and the subsequent invasion of repairing and regenerative cells, favouring restitutio ad integrum of missing bone. Because of its marked hydrophilia, it can function as a carrier for selected medications and drugs.
Gen-Os, a cortico-cancellous bone mix, has been the first product developed with the Tecnoss innovative biotechnology and, due to its universal use, still is today the most demanded from the market.
Gen-Os has been successfully used and documented for alveolar ridge preservation⁷ in combination withEvolution membranes: the application of this biomaterial limits significantly the alveolar ridge width reduction that would naturally occur with spontaneous healing, preserving thus the alveolar ridge volume and allowing a correct second stage implant placement.
Gen-Os is also indicated for lateral access maxillary sinus lift and dehiscence regeneration, always in association with Evolution membranes.
Ongoing studies are also proving its effectiveness in periodontal regeneration of deep intrabony defects. Due to its collagen content, once hydrated Gen-Os becomes very sticky and hydrophylic: it combines therefore extremely well with blood and is very stable once applied into the grafting site. Its cortico-cancellous composition allows a progressive resorption of osteoclastic type, with in parallel a similar rate of new bone formation: these unique properties allow a very good graft volume preservation, a healthy new bony tissue and ultimately, a successful implant rehabilitation.
Gen-Os expands up to 50% in volume after hydration with sterile saline: hydrated collagen contained in each granule also increases sensibly the biomaterial adhesivity.
