Straumann® BoneCeramic™ is a biocompatible and homogenous alloplast designed to maintain volume while supporting gradual replacement by your patient’s own bone. A fully alloplastic biphasic calcium phosphate, its composition of hydroxylapatite prevents excessive resorption and preserves bone volume, while ß-tricalcium phosphate absorbs more quickly as it is replaced by natural bone.
