chronOS Bone Graft Substitute


​chronOS bone graft substitute (BGS) is a synthetic β-tricalcium phosphate bone void filler which is radiopaque, resorbable and osteoconductive. The material contains calcium and phosphorus, two of the main mineral constituents of bone. During the healing process, chronOS BGS is resorbed and replaced by bone in 6 – 18 months.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
