Geistlich Bio-Gide<sup>®</sup> Compressed: Feel the difference!

At the EAO in Paris, Geistlich Pharma AG launched the new member of their family of membrane products. Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed is a native bilayer collagen membrane specially designed for dentists who prefer membranes with alternative handling properties compared to the No. 1 membrane in regenerative dentistry: Geistlich Bio-Gide®.1,2


While Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed still provides Geistlich Bio-Gide®'s well-known natural bilayer structure for reliable bone regeneration3, the new twin shows a smoother surface. The compact side of the membrane is marked "UP" to ensure identification of the two layers. When handling Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed, the difference is even more tangible. The membrane is firmer to the touch, providing an alternative handling experience, and is thus even easier to cut during surgery.Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed is available in two standard sizes and provides the flexibility dentists need during surgery.


For dental regenerative procedures

Today, the combination of Geistlich Bio-Gide® and Geistlich Bio-Oss® as a part of GBR is considered the standard therapy for a wide range of indications.4 With documented success: 91.9 % implant survival rate of implants placed in regenerated bone with Geistlich Bio-Gide® and Geistlich Bio-Oss® - similar to pristine bone.5
