Surgeon-focused, patient-driven Exactech Dental launches 0.5cc Optecure and Optecure+ccc

Exactech Dental has expanded the Optecure® product line to include a dry-engineered allograft in .5cc sizes. Optecure Dental is an engineered bone graft for reconstruction and augmentation of deficient maxillary and mandibular alveolar ridges and dental intraosseous defects. Its room temperature convenience facilitates rapid mixing with normal saline, water for injection, whole blood, or autogenous bone graft (ABG). With cortical cancellous bone chips, Optecure+ccc also provides a 3D matrix for osteoconductivity. The convenience, constituents, and robust handling properties make Optecure the optimal cure for clinicians’ concerns about bone graft performance.

M & E

ZEST Anchors has expanded the popular LODI System by offering a healing cap for delayed loading protocols.

Patients’ unique and individual needs are at the core of new product development for ZEST Anchors. With the introduction of the healing cap for the LODI System, clinicians can now offer a variety of treatment protocols for delayed or immediate loading in all bone types. The new LODI healing cap, a smooth, non-engaging cap, is available for 2.4 mm and 2.9 mm diameter LODI Implants in 3 mm and 4 mm cuff heights and is ideal during healing.

The LODI System offers clinicians a trusted treatment alternative for their edentulous patients’ unique scenarios, which consist of anatomical limitations, the unwillingness or inability to endure an invasive bone grafting procedure, or financial limitations. The LODI System, incorporating narrow diameter implants with a detachable LOCATOR Attachment, is an ideal solution for these patients.

Sunstar introduces GUIDOR® easy-graft® Alloplastic Bone Grafting System

Sunstar Americas announces a new extension to its guided bone regeneration portfolio with the introduction of GUIDOR® easy-graft® CLASSIC Alloplastic Bone Grafting System. Designed with technology that enables the material to be syringed directly into a bone defect, GUIDOR easy-graft is the first bone grafting material that hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in minutes and may reduce the need for a dental membrane.1 Cleared for a wide range of indications, GUIDOR easy-graft is a fully resorbable bone grafting material ideally suited for socket preservation after tooth extraction and implant packing.

The easy handling of GUIDOR easy-graft originates from its unique combination of materials. Comprised of coated synthetic granules in a syringe and a liquid activator, the material hardens into a stable, porous scaffold in minutes when in contact with fluids such as blood. This brief delay allows practitioners time to pack and shape the material to the contours of the defect before hardening occurs.

For more information, visit, or call Sunstar at 1-877-484-3671.
