OTTAWA, Ontario, Jan. 26, 2017 /CNW/ -- Hesira Med announced that OSSIX® VOLUMAX has received Health Canada license, enabling the company to commercially market this new volumizing, thick (1-2mm) collagen scaffold within Canada. It is the newest addition to the OSSIX® line of dental regeneration products, developed and manufactured by Datum Dental, for use in periodontics, oral surgery, dental implantology and dental aesthetic procedures.
Data presented at the American Association of Periodontology (AAP) 102nd Annual Meeting Poster Session and at the European Association for Osseointegration (EAO) Congress in September 2016, clearly demonstrate statistically significant improved bone growth using OSSIX® VOLUMAX versus empty controls. The results also show OSSIX® VOLUMAX's mineralisation and ossification progress.
Dr. Yuval Zubery, DMD, Specialist in Periodontics and Chief Medical Officer at Datum Dental, believes that OSSIX® VOLUMAX has significant potential to restore lost volume in guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) cases. "In implant surgery procedures where there is missing buccal bone, residual dehiscence or buccal dehiscence (video demonstration), this new thick collagen matrix restores lost volume. We are receiving excellent feedback from clinicians in countries where the product has already been approved. Some are also choosing OSSIX® VOLUMAX for use in the esthetic zone, especially for masking implants."
Mr. Itay Itzhaky, Chairman, Datum Dental said: "OSSIX® VOLUMAX and the well-known and decade-long proven OSSIX® PLUS both feature the sugar collagen cross linking GLYMATRIX® technology. This proprietary technology enables production of collagen matrices, which can be bio-programmed and tailored to deliver a range of products of varying physical properties, customized longevity and controlled rates of degradation. Over 100 publications have been published to date. We continue to develop products featuring this unique technology, for the benefit of patients and healthcare around the globe."
Mr. Chris Carriere, Managing Director, Hesira Med added: "We believe that Canadian clinicians deserve best-in-class dental regenerative materials in order to achieve ideal treatment outcomes for patients. We are proud to be bringing new and innovative products to Canada. OSSIX® PLUS and OSSIX™ GRAFT particulate allograft have been well received by clinicians. We are excited to be adding OSSIX® VOLUMAX to our product line, which was recently announced winner of the 2017 DrBicuspid.com Dental Excellence Award for Best New Restorative Material."
OSSIX® VOLUMAX is available in 4 sizes: 10 x 12.5, 15 x 25, 10 x 40, 25 x 30 mm.
