Cerasorb® Dental M is an exciting development in bone regeneration that provides enhanced porosity for better resorption in most bone grafting and dental implant procedures.
new generation of pure-phase ß-tricalcium phosphate
unique interconnecting porosity that allows it to be completely resorbed while simultaneously creating new bone formation
bone quality comparable to autogenous bone, the gold standard for bone grafting techniques
Developed through 20 years of research, Cerasorb produces quality bone without having to harvest an autogenous graft or the risk of disease transmission from cadaveric bone—a growing concern for many patients and clinicians.
Cerasorb® has been the subject in over 150 leading scientific journals.
Cerasorb is used by leading implant dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and periodontists for a variety of clinical indications:
Sinus lifts and other bone grafting needs
Key features and benefits of the material:
Porosity: Cerasorb® M maintains about 65% porosity, allowing bone growth not only from the exterior surface, but from the extensive surface area within the granules.
Osteoconductive: The capillary effect of the blood mixed with Cerasorb® M promotes the osteoblasts to stimulate the initial matrix of bone formation or scaffolding.
Resorption: Cerasorb® M will quickly turn over to quality vital bone within 4-12 months depending on the location and size of the defect and the patient characteristics.
Cost effective: Cerasorb provides significant savings when compared to most biologically-based bone grafting materials.
Broad Usage for Grafting: The 3 different granule sizes cover virtually all dental indications.

What are the ingredients in Cerasorb?
Cerasorb consists only of calcium and phosphates. This new generation of pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate is specifically made to provide unique interconnecting porosity which encourages cell growth
For which grafting indications can I use Cerasorb?
Cerasorb can be used for virtually all oral surgical indications, including socket extractions, ridge augmentations, periodontal defects, sinus lifts and other bony defects. Clinicians describe the variety of indications in over 150 publications found in the Literature section.
What granule sizes of Cerasorb should I use in different indications?
Size Recommendations for Clinical Indications
150-500µm—Periodontal defects, socket extractions
500-1000µm—Ridge preservation & augmentation, sinus lifts
1000-2000µm—Large bony defects, cysts
How do I prepare Cerasorb?
Prepare the graft bed removing bone fragments and necrotic tissue. Then, the Cerasorb granules should be mixed with the patient’s fresh blood from the defect or with venous blood at about a 1/3 blood to 2/3 ratio. In addition, the patient’s PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) may be admixed.
It contains a high concentration of growth factors that promote angiogenesis and wound healing. For large defects Cerasorb M DENTAL can be admixed with autogenous spongiosa of comparable size. The bone defect should be completely filled with intact mixed granules, avoiding overfilling. The mucoperiosteal flaps can be sutured for primary closure or the surgeon may place a surgical dressing or membrane such as EpiGuide to keep the granule /blood mixture in place. The porous structure of Cerasorb gives excellent radio-opaqueness as it resorbs which allows the healing process to be monitored as the bone cells and blood vessels grow into the matrix.
Why is Cerasorb better than other synthetic bone grafting materials?
Because of its manufacturing process, Cerasorb is pure-phase β-TCP and does not contain other components such as hydroxyl apatite (HA) found in older ceramics, and thus, its resorption occurs completely, uniformly and parallel to the formation of new bone in the former defect.
Why is Cerasorb preferable to biologically-derived bone grafting products?
With Cerasorb, patient education and consent forms do not need to address problems involving allergic reactions or the potential risks of infection transmission from materials like bovine bone, processed bone matrix or cadaveric demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft.
Should I use Cerasorb in all extractions or only for sockets where implants will be placed?
Bone grafting with an osteoconductive material like Cerasorb should be used for all socket extractions, whether or not dental implant placement is planned. Not using GBR techniques can lead to a loss of the ridge in only a few years. Effective GBR techniques can minimize that loss.
How long will it take for Cerasorb to resorb and be incorporated into bone? How can I tell that the bone can support a dental implant?
In most situations, Cerasorb is completely resorbed in 4-12 months and its porous scaffold during that time helps the natural bone formation to occur. Due to the specially designed porosity, Cerasorb granules resorb gradually both from the outer surface and from within the material. In addition, the granules are radio-opaque, so clinicians can easily monitor the site’s status (see examples in clinical section).
Do I need to use a membrane for all grafting procedures or to keep Cerasorb in place?
Most clinicians prefer placing a membrane over the surgical site to protect the area and the osteogenesis process from disruption as it heals. A membrane can also help hold the Cerasorb granules in place but the unique polygonal shape of the granules will hold them together when properly prepared.
