Geistlich Bio-Gide® is the leading collagen membrane in North America for oral tissue regeneration.1,2 It is used in combination with a bone substitute such as Geistlich Bio-Oss® or Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen®. Geistlich Bio-Gide® integrates with surrounding tissues to protect the initial coagulum. With its unique bilayer structure, Geistlich Bio-Gide® not only prevents ingrowth of soft tissue into the augmented site, but then optimally degrades to allow for the cascade of biologic events leading to regeneration.5,6 It is the sum of these characteristics that defines the biofunctionality of Geistlich Bio-Gide® and is the basis for its long-term clinical success.

For additional information on the biofunctionality of Geistlich Bio-Gide® please review the Downloads section on the right hand side of this page.

Geistlich Bio-Gide® is naturally resorbable therefore a second surgery for removal of the membrane is not required. As it simplifies the surgical technique, and exhibits excellent wound healing properties3,4, Geistlich Bio-Gide® has fundamentally changed dental bone regeneration.


Leading clinicians rely on Geistlich Bio-Gide® for:

Excellent tissue integration5,6 and undisturbed bone regeneration compared to using a bone substitute alone7,8.
Native collagen structure results in fewer dehiscences compared with other available membranes3,4,9.
Fully resorbable, no second surgery required for membrane removal.
Predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone10.
Long-term data demonstrates predictable results in Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) treatments when Geistlich Bio-Gide® is used in combination with Geistlich Bio-Oss®11.

Geistlich Bio-Gide® was originally developed to eliminate dehiscences and improve handling characteristics. Today, Geistlich Bio-Gide® provides the optimal requirements for bone regeneration and is the leading collagen membrane, validated by 18 years of successful clinical use in more than two million patients and documented in more than 200 scientific publications12.


FAQ

Why is a membrane necessary?

Alveolar bone best regenerates with a membrane designed for Guided bone regeneration. The use of a membrane leads to more and better bone compared to procedures that do not include a membrane.1

How long should a membrane function as a barrier in Guided Bone Regeneration?

Expert oral surgeons have estimated that a membrane used in Guided Bone Regeneration should maintain its barrier function until the provisional matrix and woven bone are present. Barrier duration is considered to be necessary for 7 to 14 days, in most cases. Optimal barrier function now means that occlusiveness is maintained until the wound heals – a process which normally takes about 2 weeks.
Geistlich Bio-Gide® has proven to support bone regeneration on an equivalent level as membranes with a longer barrier function, with the additional benefit of complication-free wound healing.1-3

Why Geistlich Bio-Gide®? How does it differ from other collagen membranes?

Geistlich Bio-Gide® is a membrane with a unique bilayer structure. It combines optimal bone formation with complication –free wound healing and predictable outcomes. An exceptional number of scientific publications and proven long-term success underline the unparalleled performance of Geistlich Bio-Gide®.

Have inflammatory reactions been associated with Geistlich Bio-Gide®?

Inflammation is a possible complication, which may occur with any surgery. However, biocompatibility of Geistlich Bio-Gide® has been verified by testing.

Is it possible to get an allergic reaction to Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide®?

Since Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide® are made of collagen, allergic reactions and inflammatory tissue reactions cannot be ruled out. These are, however, extremely rare.

What happens if the membrane is applied side-inverted (rough side towards soft tissue)?

The compact layer of Geistlich Bio-Gide® exhibits higher cell occlusiveness than the rough, porous layer. If the membrane is applied side-inverted, integration of the bone cells may take place rather more slowly. However, it is not necessary to remove the membrane.

Can Geistlich Bio-Gide® be re-sterilized?

No, autoclaving or hot-air sterilization irreversibly destroys the collagen structure. The physical properties of the membrane are changed and the consistency of the product becomes like parchment paper. The membrane may not be used. In this case, Geistlich as the manufacturer, cannot accept product liability because the product is not approved for re-sterilization.

Does the membrane have to be fixed?

Since Geistlich Bio-Gide® adheres very well to the defect, it is normally not necessary to utilize fixation screws or pins. However, fixation is possible.

How can Geistlich Bio-Gide® be used in extraction socket management for open healing?

Geistlich Bio-Gide® can heal submerged or open1 depending on the surgeons preference. The advantages of the secondary intention healing of Geistlich Bio-Gide® are the flapless surgery and the preservation of the mucogingival line.

What is the difference between Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio and Geistlich Bio-Gide®?

The surface of Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio has been made firmer when dry to facilitate periodontal applications. Second, the outer blister pack of Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio includes four sterile water repellent templates. These can be placed repeatedly in the region of the defect to allow customization of the template before cutting the membrane to the precise shape.

Why Geistlich Bio-Gide®? How does it differ from other collagen membranes?

Geistlich Bio-Gide® is a membrane with a unique bilayer structure. It combines optimal bone formation with complication-free wound healing and predictable outcomes. The native collagen of Geistlich Bio-Gide® leads to significantly less dehiscence compared to artificially cross-linked membranes.4 An exceptional number of scientific publications and proven long-term success underline the unparalleled performance of Geistlich Bio-Gide®.
