Using Socket Graft Plus™
When a portion of the socket wall is damaged, the graft material must be able to maintain shape until converted into bone. The crest and the area of the missing buccal wall need to resist pressure for weeks until bone cells can migrate into the bone graft and convert it into bone. The only current material able to maintain shape when walls are missing are granules. The granules are designed so they are not resorbed by any other cell than osteoclasts.
Because osteoclasts only exist in bone, the granules stay in the site until the area is converted into bone and then the resorption of the granules begins. Since Socket Graft Plus™ is composed of 50% βTCP granules and 50% Socket Graft™, the bone cells grow throughout the putty and convert it into bone before the granules are resorbed.
