Geistlich Mucograft®, the autologous soft tissue graft alternative, benefits patients and physicians alike. This off-the-shelf soft tissue graft eliminates the need for harvesting tissue from the patient, in turn, shortening surgical time, reducing the probability of complications, and minimizing pain. Geistlich Mucograft® is a highly biofunctional collagen matrix that supports good integration and soft tissue regeneration. It interfaces naturally and harmoniously with the patient’s own tissue for efficient recession coverage or regeneration of keratinized tissue.
Geistlich Mucograft® is a unique (US Patent No. 6,713,085) collagen matrix designed specifically for soft tissue regeneration as an alternative for autologous soft tissue grafts. The collagen matrix was developed taking the free gingival graft as a model (figure 1). The collagen of Geistlich Mucograft® is specially processed to favor immediate blood clot stabilization (figure 2). This leads to early vascularisation,1,2 facilitates soft tissue cell ingrowth and good integration of the collagen matrix with surrounding tissues (figures 3, 4 and 5).
Leading clinicians rely on Geistlich Mucograft®:
- No harvest-site morbidity.
- Less pain compared with autologous grafts.
- Reduced surgical chair-time compared with autologous grafts.
- Natural soft-tissue colour and texture match.
- Early vascularization and good soft-tissue ingrowth.
- Good wound healing, also in open situations.
- Easy handling and application in a dry state.
Geistlich Mucograft® consists of two structures: the compact structure provides stability while allowing open healing; the spongy structure supports blood clot stabilization and ingrowth of soft-tissue cells.
