Advantages

Interconnecting Porosity

The open and interconnecting porosity of Betabase MP granules enable bone growth throughout the complete particle, unlike the icing effect of bone that occurs in less porous materials. The micropore sizes range from 0.5 10 μm, while the macropore sizes are 50 700 μm. This unique combination closely mimics the porous structure of human bone and leads to predictable bone formation.

Advanced Osteoconductivity

The advanced chemical structure of Betabase MP ß-TCP granules facilitates the rapid formation

of osteoblasts – the precursor to osteogenesis. Betabase MP not only offers advanced osteoconductivity, it is also osteotropic  due to the high calcium ion composition.

Complete Particle Resorption As with all materials, the rate of bone remodeling is patient and site dependent. However, the resorption rate of Betabase MP has proven similar to the rate of new bone growth. The ß-TCP resorbs simultaneously with the formation of new, natural bone within the augmentation site.

Biocompatibility

β-Tricalcium phosphate has been shown to be 100% biocompatible in numerous studies. There have been no unfavorable tissue reactions or immunologic reactive rejections. In a properly prepared recipient site, Betabase MP displays very high integration to the host bone without any soft tissue encapsulation or pathological reactions.
