HORIZONTAL REGENERATION WITH DENTAL GRAFT PARTICULATES FROM TOOTH TRANSFORMER IN 68-YEAR-OLD NON-SMOKER PATIENTS
Author: Dott. Elio Minetti
The Tooth Transformer is a device capable of transforming an extracted tooth into a decontaminated and partially demineralized particulate matter that can be used as a grafting material. This kind of graft is almost totally reabsorbed by the osteoclasts. Gradually, it releases human dentin’s morphogenetic proteins in the surgical site. For this reason, it has been scientifically demonstrated that dental particulate produced by the Tooth transformer, unlike all xenon and allografts, have osteoinductive as well as osteoconductive properties.
The strength of natural! In 4 months a horizontal defect turned into bone with the same characteristics and density of the recipient bone (approval from proximity see article “Tooth as graft material: histologic study” Clin Implant Dent Relat Res 2022;1-9 doi:10.1111/cid.13097).
The extracted root residues were used to produce a particulate grafting material using the Tooth Transformer. The material was grafted without using any fixation technique. In fact, thanks to its high wettability, the tooth is very stable.
