BetaBASE MP

BetaBASE MP is a bioresorbable Bone Replacement Material of pure β‑tricalcium phosphate with interconnecting porosity.


The calcium/phosphor atom ratio is 1.5 which is very similar to the mineral phase of the human natural bone of 1.6. The bioresorption, i.e. the resorption of BetaBASE MP, takes place according to the general principles for ceramic bone replacement materials.

Physico chemical solubility direct cellular attack.

Indications

  • Filling of defects following exstirpation of bone cysts
  • Filling of extraction defects for the creation of an implant bed
  • Filling of defects in the case of corrective osteotomy
  • Other multi-layer bone defects of the alveolar processes and the facial skull
  • Periodontal defects, also in connection with membranes
  • Defects following the extraction of impacted teeth
  • Defects following apicoectomy
  • Sinus floor elevation
  • Filling of gaps between the alveolar cavity and the implant

Application

It is advisable to apply BetaBASE MP in a moist state. The patient's own blood or blood plasma should be used. If neither option is available in sufficient quantities, a sterile isotonic saline solution may be used.

Where defects are larger than approx. 2 cm³ it is advisable to mix BetaBASE MP with spongiosa.

Local administration of antibiotics is possible.
