Geistlich Mucograft® Seal
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is a ready-to-use matrix with a convenient circular shape. The matrix provides an alternative to soft-tissue grafts. Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is indicated for the sealing of extraction sockets with preserved buccal walls in combination with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen in ridge preservation procedures. The matrix establishes predictable dimensions for soft-tissue management.
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal consists of two structures: the compact structure provides stability while allowing open healing; the spongy structure supports blood clot stabilisation and ingrowth of soft-tissue cells.
Leading clinicians rely on Geistlich Mucograft® Seal:
- Minimal invasion.
- No harvest site morbidity.
- Creates predictable soft-tissue dimensions for later soft-tissue management and allows for flexible timing of implant placement.
- Early implant placement possible 8-10 weeks after extraction.
- Reduced surgical chair-time compared with autogenous grafts.
- Faster soft-tissue wound healing compared with autogenous grafts.
- Natural soft-tissue colour and texture match.
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is a small round matrix designed to seal sockets with preserved buccal walls following ridge preservation.
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal is easy to handle:
- No need for pre-treatment or pre-hydration.
- De-epithelialise adjacent soft-tissue margins before applying Geistlich Mucograft® Seal, thus promoting soft-tissue cell migration into the matrix.
- Position the compact structure facing outwards and the spongy structure towards the extraction socket.
- Suture using non-resorbable sutures, not glue.
- Close adaptation of the matrix to tissue borders can be accomplished by single interrupted sutures, double interrupted sutures or cross sutures.
Ready to use: Direct from the blister to the defect without pre-treatment or pre-hydration.
Geistlich Mucograft® Seal does not require pre-hydration or washing. It should be handled and applied in a dry state.
Before applying Geistlich Mucograft® Seal, adjacent soft-tissue margins should be de-epithelialised. This allows soft-tissue cells to migrate from the soft-tissue boarder into the matrix.
Orientation of Geistlich Mucograft® Seal: The compact structure of the matrix should face outwards and the spongy structure towards the extraction socket. Geistlich Mucograft® Seal spongeous structure is striped for easier differentiation of the two sides.
