Geistlich Bio-Gide® Shape

Geistlich Bio-Gide® Shape is a pre-cut collagen membrane designed for the treatment of extraction sockets. The new membrane is based on the Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio technology: enhanced stiffness lengthens the time available for exact positioning; this is a big plus for your application comfort.

  • Convenient: New shape specifically for ridge preservation13
  • Easy handling and application comfort: Geistlich Bio-Gide® Perio technology for enhanced stiffness13 „
  • Ready-to-use: Reduces preparation time13
  • Significantly more bone formation when Geistlich Bio-Gide® is used to protect the Geistlich Bio-Oss® in a defective extraction socket1


Ridge Preservation: A predictable solution2-7

With Geistlich Biomaterials considerably more ridge volume is preserved at 4 month after tooth extraction.8

Spontaneous healing

  • Around 50% of the alveolar volume is lost over 6 months (horizontal 29-63%, vertical 11-22%).9
  • Without supportive bone, the buccal and labial soft tissue in the socket collapses. The natural formation of new bone in the socket cannot compensate for the loss of alveolar volume.10

Ridge Preservation with Geistlich Bio-Oss® Collagen and Geistlich Bio-Gide®

  • Avoids further bone augmentation at implant placement in more than 90% of cases.7,8
  • Achieves a ridge contour that allows an easier insertion of implants11 or serves as a sufficient basis for bridge restoration12.
