Dental Bone Morselizers
Dental bone morselizers (also known as dental bone crushers and bone smashers) are used to prepare materials for guided tissue regeneration. Most often used with autogenous bone, a dental bone morselizer is an essential tool for any clinician that frequently performs grafting procedures.
With a bone morselizer on hand, it’s possible to produce an autograft chairside, increasing the performance of guided tissue regeneration with a 100% biocompatible solution.

How a Dental Bone Crusher Works
A dental bone crusher (bone morselizer) is a simple mechanical device made from surgical stainless steel. It accepts tissue through a loading cavity which is then processed (smashed and crushed) in the chamber using a hand crank system. A dental bone crusher is a manual tool that can be used easily chairside. It requires no maintenance beyond cleaning and sterilization and can provide years of service, even in a busy dental clinic.
Surgeons use dental bone crushers to prepare reliable autografts to improve the guided tissue regeneration process. Dental bone crushers can be used with any tissue material whether it is harvested from the patient or supplied by a donor. In most cases, a dental bone crusher will be used with autogenous bone harvested in the same procedure.
A dental bone crusher:
- Processes tissue into a particulate.
- Prepares autogenous tissue for guided regeneration.
- Can be used chairside.
- Is simple and free of complex parts, improving durability.
- Is easy to use and provides grafting material in a matter of minutes.
Dental Implant Technologies® supplies the most reliable dental bone morselizers to clinicians in the United States.
Is There a Functional Difference between Crushers, Bone Morselizers, and Bone Smashers?
Bone morselizers, autogenous bone crushers, human bone crushers, and bone smashers are all names for the same type of device. The technical term is dental bone mill. Clinicians may refer to them with any of these terms depending on habit, preference, where they studied, and the literature that they have researched.
Functionally, there is no difference between a bone morselizer, dental crusher, and bone smasher.
No matter the term used, bone smashers, morselizers, crushers, and mills are used to process tissue into smaller fragments to facilitate guided tissue regeneration.
An Autogenous Bone Crusher Can Process Autograft Material
Autogenous, something that is sourced from within, relates to bone harvested directly for the patient. Clinicians refer to the autogenous bone as an autograft when it is used for guided tissue regeneration.
An autogenous bone crusher is simply a mill/smasher/morselizer that is used to process bone from the patient.
There are plenty of reasons to use an autograft material rather than an allograft (donated bone) or a synthetic particulate. An autogenous bone crusher can provide clinicians and their patients with all of the benefits of natural tissue sourced during the procedure.
Autograft processed in an autogenous bone crusher is:
- Highly successful at supporting guided tissue regeneration for minor, moderate, and severe defects.
- 100% biocompatible. There’s no risk of disease contamination or immune response and rejection because the processed tissue will be genetically identical to the patient.
- Often easy to source from the defect site. After harvesting, the clinician can quickly process the autograft in an autogenous bone crusher and use it to begin guided tissue regeneration in the same procedure/sitting.
- Often preferred by patients especially when compared to receiving a donated allograft.
- Suitable for combining with other materials like demineralized bone matrix or synthetic grafting particulate.
In its solid form, the autogenous bone is unusable for guided tissue regeneration. An autogenous bone crusher maximizes the use of available tissue by turning it into a finer particulate.
What are Human Bone Crushers Made From?
The strength of naturally formed tissue means that human bone crushers need to be strong and resilient. The human bone crushers available at Dental Implant Technologies® are made from surgical stainless steel.
This material provides the best performance for human bone crushers. Tissue is broken down consistently to ensure the ideal particulate size for guided tissue regeneration. The best human bone crushers are made from surgical stainless steel, just like the majority of dental instruments.
Clinicians looking to make a long-term investment in human bone crushers and other reliable instruments will find the highest-quality options available through our online store.
How are Bone Smashers Cleaned?
Stainless steel instruments like bone crushers must be cleaned and sterilized after every use. Hand washing with a soft brush or sponge and a mild detergent with clean water will remove debris and biological materials. Bone smashers should be fully disassembled before cleaning.
Because bone smashers are exposed to fluids and particulates, washing must be thorough.
Stainless steel bone smashers can then be sterilized using in-office methods like autoclave cleaning and dry heat oven cleaning.
Chemicals and abrasive brushes or cleaning pads should be avoided. These can damage stainless steel bone smashers or leave pits and corrosion on the surface.
Bone Crusher Dental Clinic Procedure
The chairside procedure for bone crusher dental processing is simple to follow. Using our Bone Crusher Dental Bone Mill (SKU: NX-GM) as an example, we can see how easy this is.
Our bone crusher dental mill separates into three pieces. It should be fully assembled before beginning the process.
- Remove the gold lid from the body of the bone crusher dental
- Place the grafting material into the mill through the top-loading cavity.
- Place the lid back on the bone mill.
- Press the lid down and rotate the handle clockwise.
- This will grind the material. When there is little resistance and the lid is pully depressed the process is complete.
With these simple steps, a bone crusher dental mill will prepare tissue for the guided regeneration procedure.
