Membrane Fixation System

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is based on the combined use of a bone substitute and a barrier membrane, which has the dual purpose of:

  • Isolating and protecting the hard tissue avoiding the infiltration of fibroblasts at the site to be regenerated
  • Stabilizing the graft material to allow clot stabilization and optimal formation of new bone

For proper healing it is essential to avoid movement of the biomaterials1-2. Fixation of the membrane using a mechanical system can be a suitable option to help achieve stability and improve long term outcomes3.

Key Benefits:

  • No pre-drilling of the site required
  • Can be used in very compact bone
  • Tack shape designed for easy removal, if desired
  • Blue tack coloring facilitates detection under soft tissues

The Precision Tack System is composed of titanium tacks and a set of instruments that allow quick, optimal application and simple fixation of the membrane.
