The Advantages of Allograft Cancellous Bone and Cortical Bone
For dental restorations, specifically bone grafting, finding safe, reliable, and cost-efficient materials is paramount. It’s also critical to choose a solution that is convenient for the patient, with minimal trauma. The key advantage of choosing either cancellous bone or cortical bone allograft is that it eliminates the need for an autograft. This is beneficial both for the clinician and the patient.
Working with VeraGraft® products ensures that…
- The procedure is less complicated and traumatic for the patient, with less complexity during healing and recovery.
- The procedure is less complex to perform, increasing clinical efficiency and reducing the cost.
- The quality of the cancellous bone or cortical bone particulate is guaranteed, with no need for extensive processing or milling in the dental office.
VeraGraft® is one of the most trusted names in dental implantology. The complete range is available to order from Dental Implant Technologies Today.
Choosing Between Cortical Bone and Cancellous Bone Particulates
VeraGraft® is available as cortical bone particulate, cancellous bone particulate, and a combined cortical-cancellous particulate. What’s the best solution for clinicians?
Like in many areas of medicine, it depends. Clinicians should leverage their training and experience to determine the best material combination for a bone graft. There are also insights to be gained by reviewing the inherent properties of either cancellous bone or cortical bone.
Cortical bone is denser than cancellous bone, so the resorption rate can be slower. The difference, however, may have minimal impact on the outcome of the procedure, depending on the size of the defect and the patient’s natural ability to heal.
Because cortical bone is denser, many clinicians choose to use it for socket preservation. This is because the denser particulate can help to maintain space while it’s remodeled, ensuring that regenerated tissue suits the defect. Typically, the larger the defect, the more beneficial a cortical bone particulate will be. Many clinicians choose to use a combined particulate material because this can offer properties of both space management and osteoinduction.
The short answer is that while both materials can remodel in a demineralized state, the cortical bone is more likely to provide effective space maintenance thanks to its higher density, so it’s often the best choice for large defects.
Mineralized or Demineralized?
When considering osteoinduction (promoting tissue regeneration), demineralized materials are ideal. A demineralized product contains the “building blocks” of bone and can stimulate the grafting site to ensure efficient and successful healing. However, there will be cases where space maintenance is also a primary concern, so a mineralized particulate will also be necessary. Mineralized particulate doesn’t remodel but instead integrates while new tissue is formed. This means that it’s more effective at maintaining the shape and size of the graft in the defect.
- Demineralized VeraGraft® particulate is primarily osteoinductive and able to be remodeled in the graft.
- Mineralized VeraGraft® particulate is primarily osteoconductive and supports new tissue formation by maintaining space and providing an efficient scaffold.
- Many procedures will call for the properties of both mineralized and demineralized particulate. VeraGraft is available in a prepared combination of 70% mineralized particulate and 30% demineralized particulate, ensuring that there’s an efficient balance for space maintenance and the promotion of new tissue generation.

How Much is Needed? Guidelines for VeraGraft® Particulate
VeraGraft® cortical bone and cancellous bone particulates are available to order in a range of sizes by browsing our product categories. Knowing how much to order can be a challenge for some clinicians. Follow our simple guidelines for typical surgeries.
Particulate quantity at extraction sites will depend on the position and the size of the defect. The following guidelines are typical figures.
- 0.7cc to 1.0cc for canine and central incisor.
- 0.5 cc for lateral incisor.
- 1.2 cc to 2.0cc for molar including third molar.
- 0.7cc to 1.0cc for premolar.
Quantity recommendations are similar for periodontal defects.
- 0.5cc for canine, and lateral or central incisor.
- 1.2cc to 2.0cc for molar.
- 0.7cc to 1.0cc for third molar.
- 0.5cc for premolar.
For sinus augmentation procedures where the bone is typically lacking, 2.5cc to 5.0cc of grafting particulate is necessary.
To avoid being underprepared, it is recommended that clinicians order at least one additional vial beyond the indicated amount. Vials are sterile until opened, so an additional vial should be kept sealed in its packaging unless it is determined that it is required to complete the procedure.
How Safe Are Allograft Materials?
Allograft materials are sourced from human donors and are extensively processed to ensure safety without the risk of bacterial, viral, or fungal contaminants. VeraGraft® is produced in clean room facilities and is processed to remove contaminants. Donors are strictly screened, and testing during production ensures that materials are free of viruses and bacteria. Final irradiation ensures that VeraGraft® is sterile in the packaging.
VeraGraft® is fully accredited by the American Association of Tissue Banks and is processed in the USA in compliance with all industry regulations and guidelines.
Safety with VeraGraft® is assured, with no higher risk of complication than using a synthetic material, autograft, or xenograft.
