Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed is the twin to Geistlich Bio-Gide®, a collagen membrane for reliable bone regeneration and optimal tissue integration.1-3 In comparison, Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed has a smoother surface, is firmer in touch and easier to cut.4 Therefore it is especially suitable for dentists who would like alternative handling properties.4 Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed should be used in combination with a space-creating bone graft material such as autologous bone, Geistlich Bio-Oss® or Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen.

 

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed is naturally resorbable and does not have to be removed in a second surgery. Thereby it simplifies the surgery technique.

“Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed combines alternative handling with the proven outstanding biofunctionality of Geistlich biomaterials. Giving surgeons more choice for their membrane requirements.”
Prof. Istvan Urban, Budapest, Hungary

 

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed: Feel the difference!

  • Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed has been designed by Geistlich's collagen experts to offer a membrane that combines the unique biofunctionality of Geistlich Bio-Gide® with an alternative handling4
  • Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed has a smoother surface, is firmer in touch and easier to cut than Geistlich Bio-Gide®4
  • Just like Geistlich Bio-Gide® the membrane does not have to be removed in a second surgery
  • Long-term data over 12 to 14 years show predictable results of bone augmentations with Geistlich Bio-Oss® and Geistlich Bio-Gide®5

Geistlich Bio-Gide® is a collagen membrane, validated by over 20 years of successful use in more than 4.5 million patients and documented in more than 250 scientific publications.6-8 Geistlich Bio-Gide® Compressed is based on Geistlich Bio-Gide®, offering an alternative handling for those dentists who prefer a firmer membrane.
