Instructions for use

Octabone® is a biocompatible, porous, inorganic mineral matrix for use in oral and maxillofacial surgery to repair bone defects. It is derived from bovine bone through a special manufacturing process that removes organic material.


Octabone® is packaged and sterilized using gamma irradiation. The shelf life is 5 years for Octabone® and 3 years for Octabone® Syringe. Octabone® has a highly cancellous structure similar to human bone demonstrated under high magnification.



(Intended use)

  • Alveolar ridge defects

  • Sinus Augmentation.

  • Extraction defects.

  • Periodontal defects with or without products intended for Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR).

  • Peri-implant defects with or without products intended for Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR).


Practitioners should follow surgical principles according to standard medical or dental practice.

  • Remove any soft tissue or granulation tissue carefully and expose fresh bone.

  • Completely soak Octabone® with saline solution or the patient’s blood product before application.


  1. Octabone®: Fill the defect with prepared Octabone® using a sterilized spatula or surgical spoon.

  2. Octabone® Syringe: After unscrewing the cap, completely soak Octabone® by drawing saline solution or the patient’s blood product into the syringe. Press the plunger and apply Octabone® directly into the defect site.


  • Avoid applying excessive pressure on Octabone® particles to maintain its multiporotic nature. Breaking Octabone® down into smaller pieces may adversely affect the surgical site’s healing rate.

  • Apply protective membrane over applied Octabone® as necessary.

  • Do not overfill defects.

  • Do not leave defects open.

  • Surgical dressing may be placed over the wound.

  • 6 months healing time prior to implant placement is recommended, but the operator should evaluate and make his or her own determination.



Octabone® is not recommended for use in patients with the following conditions:

  • Osteomyelitis of or near the bone defect site

  • Blood dyscrasias

  • Heavy tobacco use

  • History of radiation therapy

  • Diabetes

  • Advanced liver or kidney disease

  • Hypo- or hyperthyroidism

Medical consultation prior to use is recommended at the discretion of the practitioner
