From the science of dental implants, we have learnt that the rate of osteointegration is significantly influenced by the osteoconductive potential of implant surfaces, which is itself determined by the topography and roughness of the non-porous titanium surface.
HA is the most used grafting biomaterial for alveolar bone regeneration and preservation. The physico-chemical characteristics of natural HA are crucial for biological performance and for optimal bone regeneration. Indeed, the wide interconnected and bimodal pore system and the natural crystalline structure of Wishbone HA favors bone formation and growth while being biocompatible and free of proteins.
The Wishbone product range is based on pure natural bone substitute made from the mineral part of Belgian bovine bones. Wishbone developed an innovative manufacturing process, which guarantees organic constituent removal while preserving the hydroxyapatite structure similar to human bone. The structure, granulometry and purity of Wishbone materials are optimized to improve biocompatibility, ostegenesis and handling.
Wishbone biomaterials were designed by a collaboration of chemists, biomedical engineers and clinicians expert in dental tissue engineering. This multidisciplinary approach enables products’ performance optimization and market needs knowledge.
Wishbone’s unique technology is derived from the supercritical fluid science, and fulfills all clinical expectations. The material is then dusted off with non aggressive methods, and slightly hardened through short heating at a controlled temperature.

Bioptos : A 3D printed bone graft substitute developped in collaboration with Cerhum, Sirris, BioMech, d-Bru this bone graft substitue will be a custom made design in synthetic biomaterial using stereolithography.This program benefited from a financial support of Wallonia in the frame of a BioWin program. This is an initiative of the plan Marshall 4.0.
