Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen consists of 90% Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules and 10% porcine collagen. The 90% of Geistlich Bio-Oss® particles provide Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen with all the advantages of the scientifically proven No 1 biomaterial in regenerative dentistry1,2.

The additional 10% of porcine collagen make it formable and easy to handle. Its regenerative potential clearly distinguishes Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen from mere collagen plugs.

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is used in the most varied indications, including ridge preservation, minor bone augmentation and periodontal regeneration. The collagen is absorbed after a few weeks and does not replace the barrier function of a membrane.

“Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen has better handling properties compared to Geistlich Bio-Oss® granules, is easier to shape and quicker to apply.”
Prof. Mariano Sanz, Madrid, Spain

 

Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen is “the Master’s Choice” because:

  • Added collagen in Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen improves handling and tailoring to the morphology of the defect3,4.
  • Geistlich Bio-Oss® particles serve as a scaffold for new bone and ensure predictable bone regeneration5,6.
  • Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen augmented tissue remains volume-stable in the long term due to the low resorption rate of the material7,8.
  • Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen significantly improves clinical attachment and pocket depth in periodontal surgery9.
  • Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen has the capacity to enable regeneration of the periodontal attachment apparatus in intrabony defects10.

 

Handling characteristics are enhanced through the addition of 10% collagen. Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen block is easily modelled and adheres well to the defect site.
