What are biomaterials?

Biomaterials are non-viable materials that can be implanted to replace or repair missing tissue. They may be of natural origin or synthesised in a laboratory and are able to interact with the human body.

Biomaterials, such as bone substitutes, collagen membranes and matrices, are used regularly in regenerative dentistry as well as for bone and cartilage regeneration in orthopaedics.

 

All Geistlich biomaterials are derived from natural material and have been developed to promote new bone or soft-tissue formation. Due to their similarity to human tissue, these materials are optimally suited for this purpose. They are integrated into the tissue through the course of healing process, or are broken down gradually by the body’s metabolic processes.

 

Geistlich bone substitute material: stabilises and supports bone regeneration

  • Made from purified and sterilised bovine bone - very similar to human bone.
  • Consists only of hard mineral portion; organic factors are removed during manufacturing.
  • Geistlich bone substitute materials help the body to regenerate lost bone. 

 

Geistlich collagen membranes: protect and support wound healing

  • Made from highly purified porcine collagen. Collagen is a main component of human skin and tissue.
  • Geistlich collagen membranes support wound healing and provide a barrier between bone and gum tissue to enable unimpeded formation of new bone.

 

Geistlich collagen matrices: for gum regeneration

  • Made from highly purified porcine collagen. Collagen is a main component of human skin and tissue.
  • Collagen matrices enhance gum tissue regeneration.
