Simplified augmentation of 3 D defect
Surgeons usually would like to do big surgery as I did until my early 40s but most of patients want minimally invasive surgery. So I stoppe to harvest auto block bone for ridge or sinus augmentation.
Harvestin of auto block bone is technically difficult and time consuming, and most of patients complain morbidity of donor sites.
As alternative to auto bone, decal tooth bone has been introduced since 1960s.
Decalcified tooth block is known to release diverse osteindivtive proteins similar as auto block bone.
Therefore, fast bone regeneration is achieved.
