HANSAmed Geistlich Bio-Gide

Geistlich Bio-Gide® 

Geistlich Bio-Gide® should always be used with a bone graft substitute, such as Geistlich Bio-Oss® or Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen®.

Application of Geistlich Bio-Gide® is easy:

  • Measure the defect with a periodontal probe.
  • Trim the dry collagen membrane to the desired shape and size.
  • Apply dry with the rough side facing the defect.
  • Moisten the membrane in situ with blood from the defect.

The membrane may be sutured or fixed with pins, but this is unnecessary in most cases due to its marked hydrophilic and adhesive properties.

After measuring the defect (e.g. with a sterile template or periodontal probe), the dry Geistlich Bio-Gide® is cut to the desired shape.
Geistlich Bio-Gide® is applied dry (rough side facing towards the defect) and is moistened with blood from the defect when it is in situ.
Excellent hydrophilicity promotes Geistlich Bio-Gide® adhesion to the graft and surrounding bone. The membrane may also be sutured or fixed in place with pins (Picture by courtesy of Prof. Daniel Buser, Bern, Switzerland).

CAUTION: Federal law restricts these devices to sale by or on the order of a dentist or physician.
