Geistlich Bio-Gide® Shape

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Shape is a pre-cut resorbable collagen membrane designed for the treatment of non-intact extraction sockets. It was developed with the same biological properties as Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio, yielding slower absorption of moisture and lengthening the time available for exact positioning into the defect, as well as increased stiffness and application comfort.

Geistlich Bio-Gide Shape possesses the same qualities as our leading collagen membrane for oral tissue regeneration, Geistlich Bio-Gide®.1,2

  • Convenient: New shape specifically designed for non-intact extraction sockets
  • Easy handling and application: modified structure has been made firmer when dry to facilitate cutting of the material.
  • Ready-to-use: Pre-cut for clinical use reduces preparation time
  • Significantly more new bone formation when used in combination with Geistlich bone substitutes3

A Predictable Solution4-9 for Ridge Preservation

The use of Geistlich Biomaterials results in considerably more ridge volume preservation at 4 months after tooth extraction.10

Spontaneous Healing
  • Approximately 50% of the alveolar volume is lost over 6 months following tooth extraction (horizontal 29-63%, vertical 11-22%).11
  • Without the supporting bone, the buccal and labial soft-tissues collapse. The natural formation of new bone in the socket cannot compensate for the loss of alveolar volume.12
Ridge Preservation with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® and Geistlich Bio-Gide®
  • Avoids further bone augmentation at the implant placement in more than 90% of cases.9,10
  • Achieves sufficient ridge contour that allows for easier placement of implants.14
