Calcitos is manufactured by subjecting cancellous equine bone to a very high temperature. This aims to eliminate bone collagen and to achieve a controlled decarbonation of the apatite crystal.
These two actions minimize the adhesion of osteoclasts, the bone remodeling cells, on Calcitos, preserving its integrity in the grafted site.
Calcitos is an equine space-keeping bone substitute. It may be successfully used whenever a long-lasting bone augmentation is desired. Therefore, it is indicated for all the application calling for volume stability over time.
Bone substitutes manufactured by heat-treating animal bone have been widely known in oral and maxillo-facial surgery for years and hundreds of indexed clinical publications testify their effectiveness.
