DS. Excellent video as usual. It is always a pleasure to view your surgical skills employing new concepts. How do you determine in advance the amount and quality of dentin available? In addition, is processing dentin time/cost effective compared to allograft and putty options? Happy New. Best regards. Chuck

Dear Chuck,
Good questions, 1-15.cc tooth bone is available from molar.It takes 30-40 min for preparing tooth bone powder, 2 hrs for block type.

About 15 USD is needed for buying reagents. You can treat 2 molar or 4 premolars.

Compared to allogenic or bovine bone, decalcified tooth bone has inorganic and organic components. So osteoinduction and conduction is happended unlike bovine or alloplast material because BMP is relaesed in decalcified tooth bone, but not crushed tooth bone.

You can save 3rd molar or any other hopelss teeth including primay teeth and prepare tooth bone and save for 5 yrs. So you can hold your future implant patient. Thank you DS
