Synthetic Putty
NovaBone® Dental Putty

NovaBone Product Guide - Product Characteristics

NovaBone Dental Putty was introduced after extensive market research which suggested that clinicians did not expect great strides in the rate of bone formation but rather in delivery, handling and performance of bone graft substitutes without a significant cost increase.

NovaBone Putty has bimodal particle distribution of Calcium Phosphosilicate (CPS) (active ingredient), with Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) as an additive and Glycerin as the Binder. The volume of the active ingredient is approximately 70%. The Putty format allows easier manipulation due to its format and eliminates the need for any preparation prior to placement. NB Putty offers clinicians various delivery systems (Cartridges & Syringes) in various sizes with benefits of consistent, reliable bone regeneration. Putty received its initial FDA clearance and CE approval for dental indications in 2006 and 2007 respectively.1

NovaBone Bone Graft Putty is available in proprietary uni-dose cartridges, ideal for minimally invasive surgeries, hard to access defects, immediate implant surgeries, osteotome sinus surgeries, etc. Each cartridge/mini cartridge holds 0.25 - 0.5 cc of putty.

Putty does not set like a cement but has a transient hemostatic effect designed to provide a comfortable environment for the clinician to work with. Putty has great retention and can adapt to the defect shape.2

Putty is radio-dense and can be visualized on radiographs. Upon implantation, it appears as a mass at the defect site which can be differentiated from surrounding bone by the lack of trabecular pattern. Over time, with bone remodeling, the grafted area appears analogous to the natural bone in the region.

Putty has a 4-year shelf life and does not need refrigeration but caution should be exercised at temperatures higher than 40˚C.
