Osteoconduction

An osteoconductive material functions as a scaffold that allows bone growth on its surface or into its three-dimensional structure. BonAlive® granules and BonAlive® putty are osteoconductive in nature, providing a supportive material for the osteoblast cells during bone formation. As a result of the osteoconductive process, bone grows onto and between the bioactive glass granules.
