d-PTFE

d-PTFE w/ Titanium insert

GTR and GBR cases where maintaining space and increasing volume are desired outcomes.

GTR and GBR cases that may benefit from a membrane with a little less memory or may require increased healing times.

GTR & GBR cases where primary closure is not possible or is not desired

Cases needing an increased level structural support and containment like 1) extraction sockets missing 1-3 walls 2) ridge augmentations

• Made from Biocompatible dense Polytetrafluoroethylene (d-PTFE) material • Membrane easily placed straight out of package (no rehydration required). Membrane has some rigidity that allows it be easily tucked in subperiosteally. • Cell Occlusive and impervious to bacteria. Does not require primary closure • One side has been texturized to increase soft tissue attachment and membrane stability • Does not resorb thereby providing constant level of protection during use

• Made from Biocompatible dense Polytetrafluoroethylene (d-PTFE) material • Excellent shape memory (as result of titanium insert) • Cell Occlusive and impervious to bacteria. Does not require primary closure • One side has been texturized to increase soft tissue attachment and membrane stability • Does not resorb thereby providing constant level of protection and space maintenance during use • Tissue does not grow through membrane allowing for easy removal when case is completed.

Characteristics

• Made from highly purified Type I collagen harvested from porcine tendon • Easy to use; either side may be placed against defect. • Can be used dry or hydrated. Hydrates in minutes. Membrane does not stick to itself when hydrated allowing for easy placement and/or repositioning. •Membrane retains sufficient memory when hydrated which allows it to be easily positioned under the periosteum uniformly without bunching up. This also allows the membrane to maintain its shape and position during closing , suturing and throughout its use • Membrane is also soft and conformable. This allows membrane to adapt well to most varying bone topographies. • Unique fiber orientation provides membrane with high tensile strength and high suture pullout resistance. • Cell occlusive

• Made from highly purified Type I collagen harvested from bovine tendon • Easy to use; either side may be placed against defect. • Can be used dry or hydrated. Hydrates in minutes. Membrane does not stick to itself when hydrated allowing for easy placement and/or repositioning. • Membrane has optimized flexibility. This allows membrane to intimately adapt to graft site while still providing excellent GBR properties. It’s low volume allows for physiologic separation of cell types with minimal space requirement allowing for primary closure in tight locations. • Unique fiber orientation provides membrane with high tensile strength and high suture pullout resistance. • Cell occlusive • Extended resporption time provides longer lasting protection for cases requiring additional time to heal.
