RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina--RIEMSER, Inc., a lsupplier of bone regeneration products, will begin distributing the Bacterin family of dental allograft products to general dentists, periodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

Processed in Bacterin's fully AATB-accredited facilities, the line includes:

* OsteoSponge Block, a cancellous demineralized bone matrix (DBM) that can absorb its weight in fluid and has the malleability and elasticity to be compressed into any void, while forming a strong biological scaffold

*OsteoSponge Filler, a demineralized particulate allograft that provides osteoinduction D-Block, a novel sterilized block allograft for alveolar defects

*OsteoWrap, a flexible 100% human cortical bone product that offers malleability while acting as a barrier membrane

These products are indicated for ridge augmentations, sinus elevations, and repair of other bony defects in which allograft products can enhance bone-grafting procedures.

U.S. surgeons have been using the Bacterin line in dental, spinal, and orthopedic procedures for the past five years.

"We're very pleased that RIEMSER will help expand the use of Bacterin's OsteoSponge line within the dental market," said Jesus Hernandez, vice president of biologics for Bacterin International. "Surgeons worldwide recognize the multi-surgical uses and added benefits of OsteoSponge DBM in bone regeneration."
