IFGL Refractories Limited (IFGL) has set up facilities for manufacture of Dental Bone Graft Granules and Blocks at their Unit situated near Rourkela. These products are marketed by IFGL Bio Ceramics Ltd (IBL).
Two varieties like Dental Bone Graft Granules that is Hydroxyapatite (Bio Graft – HA) & Beta – tri-calcium phosphate (BioGraft – HT) are manufactured and are available in the market under brand name of 'BioGraft'. These are synthetic hydroxyapatite and hydroxyapatite beta tri-calcium phosphate-based bone graft material, which are both bio-compatible and bio-active.
The porous and crystalline structure provides osteoconductivity and resorbability. It provides an obsteoconductivity scaffold in the bone regenerative process. Indian Patents' application has also been filed (842 DEL 2008) for the BioGraft dental granules.
IFGL also produces Dental Bone Graft blocks based on synthetic hydroxyapatite phases, which are available in different sizes.
