Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen
Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen consists of 90% Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules and 10% porcine collagen. The 90% of Geistlich Bio-Oss® particles provide Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen with all the advantages of the scientifically proven No 1 biomaterial in regenerative dentistry.
The additional 10% of porcine collagen make it formable and easy to handle. Its regenerative potential clearly distinguishes Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen from mere collagen plugs.
Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is used in the most varied indications, including ridge preservation, minor bone augmentation and periodontal regeneration. The collagen is absorbed after a few weeks and does not replace the barrier function of a membrane.
Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is “the Master’s Choice” because:
- Added collagen in Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen improves handling and tailoring to the morphology of the defect.
- Geistlich Bio-Oss® particles serve as a scaffold for new bone and ensure predictable bone regeneration.
- Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen augmented tissue remains volume-stable in the long term due to the low resorption rate of the material.
- Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen significantly improves clinical attachment and pocket depth in periodontal surgery.
- Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen has the capacity to enable regeneration of the periodontal attachment apparatus in intrabony defects.
Handling characteristics are enhanced through the addition of 10% collagen. Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen block is easily modelled and adheres well to the defect site.
Preparation of Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is easy:
- Cut the Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen block to the appropriate size.
- Apply it dry, or moisten with saline solution.
- When moistened, mould to the desired shape.
- Place in defect site with forceps.
- Avoid excessive compression.
Geistlich Bio Oss® Collagen can be trimmed dry or after moistening with a scalpel or with scissors.
Geistlich Bio Oss® Collagen can be moistened with sterile saline…
…or with patient’s blood.
Geistlich Bio Oss® Collagen can easily be placed in the defect site with forceps to preserve the ridge contour. Excessive compression should be avoided (clinical case by Prof. Ronald Jung, Zurich, Switzerland).
