Bioactive Glass was invented by Dr. Larry Hench back in 1970’s and was first commercialized for dental use in 1993. Over 100,000 cases have been performed using PerioGlas indicative of its safety and efficacy.
Back in the 90’s there was a significant interest in periodontal regeneration. PerioGlas not only regenerated bone but also preserved the whole ‘Periodontium’. While PerioGlas was primarily indicated for periodontal defects, it could be used to regenerate bone in any or all osseos defects. PerioGlas was also marketed as NovaBone –CM for several years indicated primarily in the carniomaxillofacial fields.
While historically the purpose of a graft was to replace the missing tissue, PerioGlas was one of the very few synthetic substitutes that would completely resorb and regenerate bone in the defect. It demonstrated excellent bonding to both bone and soft tissues.
