The new Geistlich Mucograft® Seal collagen matrix is essential for this minimally invasive approach. Developed especially for ridge preservation, it can be used for extraction sockets with intact buccal bone lamella (at least 50% preserved).
Benefit from the advantages
Ridge preservation minimises volume loss of the alveolar bone after tooth extraction and the need for subsequent bone augmentation is reduced 10-fold1,2. In addition, closing the alveolus with Geistlich Mucograft® Seal optimally regenerates soft tissue2.
More flexibility for subsequent procedures – an implant can be placed after only 8 to 10 weeks3. Furthermore, bone and soft tissue are also optimally prepared for future implant placement or bridge reconstruction.
