What are biomaterials?

Biomaterials are non-viable materials that can be implanted to replace or repair missing tissue. They may be of natural origin or synthesized in a laboratory. When used in a medical application, biomaterials can be implanted to replace or repair missing tissue.

Biomaterials, such as bone substitutes and collagen membranes, are used regularly in regenerative dentistry as well as for bone and cartilage regeneration in orthopedics.

All Geistlich biomaterials are derived from natural bovine or porcine material and have been developed to promote new bone or soft tissue formation. Due to their similarity to human tissue, these materials are optimally suited to promote new bone formation and soft-tissue healing in the human body. They are integrated into the tissue in the course of the healing process, or are broken down gradually by the body’s metabolic processes.

Geistlich bone substitute materials:

  • Derived from purified and sterilized bovine bone 
  • Consist of the hard mineral portion only; organic factors are removed during manufacturing
  • Very similar to human bone

Geistlich membranes and soft tissue substitutes:

  • Produced using highly purified porcine collagen; Collagen is a main component of human skin and tissue
  • Protective barrier membranes contribute to bone regeneration and improved healing rates
  • Collagen matrices enhance soft tissue regeneration
