Geistlich Fibro-Gide®

Handling of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is very easy compared to connective tissue grafts:

  • Unlimited availability and consistent quality.1
  • Measure the defect and trim the matrix to the desired size and thickness.1
  • Once moist, the matrix can be further trimmed to the desired size and thickness.1
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® can easily be sutured.1
  • No need for pre-treatment: Excellent hydrophilic characteristics lead to rapid hydration by patient’s own blood and/or sterile saline solution with a volume increase of approx. 25 %.1
  • The soaked matrix adapts to contours and adheres well to the defect.1
  • Squeezing and re-hydration: Once squeezed, the matrix goes back to its initial state after remoistening (considering the additional swelling of approx. 25 %).1
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® does not require a second surgical site.2-5
  • Geistlich Fibro-Gide® should be used as a submerged graft to increase soft-tissue thickness around implants and natural teeth.1
