Characteristics: Soft Cortical Lamina is made of cortical bone of heterologous origin produced with an exclusive Tecnoss process that avoids the ceramization of hydroxyapatite crystals, thus accelerating physiological resorption.
After a process of superficial decalcification, it acquires an elastic consistency, nevertheless maintaining the typical consistency of the bone tissue from which it originates; the margins are soft in order not to cause micro traumas to the surrounding tissues.
Handling: Soft Cortical Lamina can be shaped with sterile scissors until the desired size is reached, then it must be hydrated for 5/10 minutes in sterile physiological solution. Once it acquires the desired plasticity, it must be adapted to the grafting site; it should always be immobilized either with titanium microscrews or sutured directly to the surrounding tissues with a triangular section non-traumatic needle. In case of exposure, Lamina should only be removed if there is a clear suprainfection, because its consistency is such as to allow it to achieve a complete second intention healing of the wound.
CLINICAL INDICATIONS SUMMARY
Oral surgery and Traumatology: stabilization and protection of large regenerations with risks of exposure, where it perfectly adapts itself both to the underlying bone and to the soft tissues.
Implantology: ideal for protection and stabilization of two-wall defect grafts or peri-implant regenerations in esthetic areas. Fine model is also indicated for covering antrostomy.
Maxillofacial surgery: orbital floor restoration.
CLINICAL INDICATIONS OVERVIEW
Lamina is made of cortical bone of heterologous origin which undergoes a process of superficial decalcification, nevertheless maintaining the typical consistency of the bone tissue from which it originates.
After hydration, it becomes flexible and can be adapted to the defect morphology creating, once fixated with osteosynthesis screws, a semi-rigid covering to the underlying graft. This property is particularly useful when it is necessary to obtain a space making effect in esthetic areas, as well as in horizontal augmentation of two wall defects.
