Geistlich Bio-Gide Perio


Características del produto:

  • Membrana bicapa reabsorbible con plantillas estériles
  • 16 mm x 22 mm

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio is a collagen membrane possessing the same biological properties as Geistlich Bio-Gide® with improved handling characteristics for periodontal procedures: the smoother upper surface slows the absorption of moisture and lengthens the time available for exact positioning into the defect. The firmer material facilitates trimming when dry, making it an optimal choice for guided tissue regeneration.

User benefits:

Guided tissue regeneration with Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio and Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® leads to sustained increase in clinical attachment level gain and pocket depth reduction than open flap debridement alone1.
Histologic studies show not only new cementum and bone formation, but also new periodontal ligament in intrabony defects treated with Geistlich biomaterials2.
Slower uptake of moisture prolongs the time available for exact positioning of the material into the defect.
Firmer material facilitates cutting when dry.
Multiple sterile templates fit a wide range of periodontal defects.

Modified structure improves handling and sterilized templates for a wide range of defects.

Due to the modified material characteristics and convenient templates, Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio is the optimal choice for periodontal regeneration.


FAQ

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.

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

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

Is it possible to get an allergic reaction to Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio?

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

Why do I need Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio when using Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen?

The collagen in Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen does not function as a membrane. In guided bone regeneration (GBR) procedures a membrane is indicated to obtain optimal results.1

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

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