The Alternative Soft-Tissue Graft
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is a porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration. The matrix is made of reconstituted collagen and undergoes a chemical cross-linking method, called smart cross-linking. This process improves volume stability of the collagen while maintaining excellent biocompatibility.1-3 The porous network of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® supports angiogenesis, formation of new connective tissue and stability of the collagen network in submerged healing situations.
Geistlich Fibro-Gide® provides an alternative to the gold standard, connective tissue graft, for regenerative soft-tissue procedures.3,5,6 With Geistlich Fibro-Gide® a second surgical site is avoided and patient morbidity is reduced.3,7-9
Inspired by Nature, engineered by Geistlich
Geistlich has drawn from its vast experience in researching, analyzing and commercializing collagen-based products to produce biomaterials that are tailor-made for specific dental procedures and therapeutic solutions. Designing a preferred alternative to soft-tissue grafts has involved years of development, testing and thousands of prototypes.
