Socket seal

After tooth extraction, Ridge Preservation can compensate for volume loss due to unavoidable bone remodeling at the extraction site.1,2 In most cases, this makes Guided Bone Regeneration at the time of implant placement unnecessary.3

Covering an extraction socket with Geistlich Mucograft® Seal can further improve soft-tissue parameters in extraction sockets with preserved buccal walls.3 The round collagen matrix provides an alternative to free gingival punch grafts. A case control study published in 2018 demonstrated that Geistlich Mucograft® Seal causes less scar tissue than a free gingival punch graft.4
