FAQ

When do you use the large Geistlich Bio-Oss Pen® particles (1-2 mm) and when the small (0.25-1 mm)?

Fundamentally, the use of small particles is recommended for small defects (up to 2 dental alveoli) and for augmenting autogenous grafts, and the large particles for large defects (> 2 dental alveoli, sinus lifts). However, preferences can vary from dentist to dentist.

Can Geistlich Bio-Oss Pen® also be used without membrane?

A membrane should be used as a barrier against ingrowth of soft tissue1. Native collagen membranes such as Geistlich Bio-Gide also support wound healing and increase therapeutic safety in the event of a postoperative wound dehiscence2,3. Physicians should read the package insert prior to use.
