100% Synthetic – Completely transforms to natural bone. Using the mineral building blocks naturally found in human bone, Eclipse™ goes a step beyond the realm of everyday hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) with its unique combination of micro and macroporosity technology.
Extraction site repair
Sinus lift procedures
For patients who express concerns with allografts and xenografts
Features and Benefits
Completely remodels to host bone
25 years of clinical experience
Macro and Micro pores allow complete remodeling
Completely remodels to host bone while preserving volume (12-18 months*)
*Resorption and bone regeneration times are estimates as each patient and case is unique.
Microporosity (pores < 10µm) allows the diffusion of biological fluids, by the capillary action, into the three-dimensional matrix. Inside the fine pores of the matrix, biological fluids dissolve ß-TCP producing calcium phosphate ions that are released back into the biological fluids. This saturation of ions leads to precipitation of apatite crystal identical to that of the natural bone minerals. Shortly afterwards, this process creates a surface that promotes bone cell adhesion.
Macropores (300 to 600µm) promote a deep invasion of osteogenic cells by osteoconduction. Through the same resorption and formation cycle as the natural bone remodeling process, new bone increases progressively at the expense of Eclipse.
Eclipse™ Granules – a 100% synthetic (20% HA, 80% TCP), cost-effective bone graft matrix used as an alternative to biologic osteoinductive products.
Eclipse™ Putty – is an innovative and moldable bone graft, composed of Hydroxyapatite (HA), Beta Tricalcium Phosphate (ß-TCP) and a hydrogel.
