What is Bio-OSS?

BIO-OSS is an allergen-free bone substitute material of bovine origin, used to fill bone defects or to reconstruct ridge configurations. Seventy one patients (39 female, 32 male) received 126 BIO-OSS implantations.

What is Bio-Oss made from?

Bovine porous bone mineral (Bio-Oss Collagen) is a relatively new material used in periodontal regeneration. This material is prepared by protein extraction of bovine bone which results in a structure similar to human cancellous bone and has the ability to enhance bone formation.

Is Bio-OSS bovine?

Geistlich Bio-Oss® is made from the mineral part of bovine bone.

Is Bio-OSS xenograft?
