Simple and Cost-Effective Bone Preservation
Michael Narodovich, DMD, on Sunstar’s GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC
I am a general dentist in Sacramento, California, and I have been practicing and placing implants for 10 years. Throughout my career, I have used a variety of bone grafting products, and most recently, I have been using GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC from Sunstar. This alloplastic bone grafting system has allowed me to provide a simple and cost-effective bone preservation material to my patients. Because there is no need to use a membrane, I achieve much faster tissue coverage, and my patients have less postoperative pain, which is a win for everyone.
1.An easy-to-handle material, GUIDOR easy-graft CLASSIC is syringed directly into the defect. 2. After contact with body fluids, the material can be shaped and contoured as it hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in approximately 1 minute. 3. GUIDOR easy-graft CLASSIC is ideal for ridge preservation and filling voids around immediately placed implants.
When do you use GUIDOR easy-graft CLASSIC?
I use it for ridge preservation after extractions as well as to graft around implants at the time of placement.
What are the top features of the product? It is easy-to-use, cost-effective, and begins to harden when in contact with blood, so there is no need for
How have patients responded? They have noticed that there is less postoperative pain and faster healing compared with when I have used a membrane technique with allograft bone.
