At Geistlich Biomaterials, we are committed to developing treatments that are uniquely matched to the clinical situations you see every day. That’s why we do more than bring you a family of products – we provide proven solutions in specific therapeutic areas.

Advances in regenerative technology, biomaterials, and clinical techniques continue to create a growing number of treatment options for you and your patients. In order to consistently achieve successful long-term outcomes, it is critical to look beyond product characteristics and technical data. A true partnership means being empowered with scientific evidence empowerment, treatment planning tools, and dynamic educational resources.

Building this essential partnership with you, starts with information. Beyond the science that is fundamental to all of our biomaterials, we have also organized our family of products within distinct therapeutic areas.

Biofunctionality: Based on Science

What Nature Inspires, Geistlich Engineers

Intentional design and the preservation of biologically natural structures are key elements in the development of Geistlich Biomaterials and the accompanying dental applications. Through unique, proprietary technology used during manufacturing, nature’s complex tissues are carefully processed to preserve biologic cues that enable optimal tissue integration.1,2

Biologically Natural Structures – Ideal Architecture

The crystalline structure of Geistlich Bio-Oss® and the Type I & III bi-layer collagen structures of Geistlich Bio-Gide® and Geistlich Mucograft® retain natural forms, allowing the body to accept these biomaterials as native. The surface of Geistlich Bio-Oss® supports the adsorption of proteins that enables adhesion of bone-forming cells.3-5 Using specific surface receptors, cells bind directly to Geistlich collagens. Geistlich Mucograft® is designed to provide a requisite, reinforcing matrix and a signaling source for regenerative wound healing. Fibroblasts respond to the collagen by attaching, orienting, and producing new collagen integration. Collagen research suggests that in such scaffolds, endothelial progenitor cells are activated for angiogenesis, and the intact collagen fibrils serve as conduits for endothelial cells and the formation of vascular channels of nutrition. These vascular channels are surrounded with perivascular mesenchymal stem cells with anti-inflammatory properties.6-9 Due to these properties, the clinical result observed with Geistlich Mucograft® is optimal soft tissue regeneration rather than soft tissue repair. 10-13

Nature’s Capacity for Healing

The human body possesses the capacity for regenerative wound healing. The natural structures of Geistlich Bio-Oss®, Geistlich Bio-Gide®, and Geistlich Mucograft® enhance the biologic cascade of healing events by attracting and delivering essential serum proteins. The result is complete tissue integration that encourages regenerative healing.
