Do you still punch or are you already sealing?

Achieve optimal bone and soft tissue regeneration following tooth extraction without punching soft tissue from the palate – with the combination of Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Mucograft® Seal. Swiss expert PD Dr. Ronald E. Jung demonstrates his technique in a surgical video.

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.
