In the patented production of Geistlich Mucograft®, a combination of intact and fragmented fibrillar collagen is used. The unique clot stabilizing macrostructure with a cell signaling microstructure results in an organized and vascularized regenerative healing.
Geistlich Mucograft is the ideal solution as an alternative to autogenous soft tissue grafts in the following clinical situations:
• Increasing the width of keratinized tissue
• Regeneration of soft tissue in recession defects
Geistlich Mucograft consists of two structures: the compact macro-structure provides stability while allowing open healing; the spongy micro-structure supports blood clot stabilization and the ingrowth of soft tissue cells.
The unique 3D collagen matrix in Geistlich Mucograft is designed specifically for soft tissue regeneration as an alternative to autogenous soft tissue grafts. The 3D matrix was developed using the free gingival graft as a model.
The collagen in Geistlich Mucograft is specifically processed to encourage immediate blood clot stabilization. This leads to early vascularization that facilitates soft tissue cell ingrowth and excellent integration of the 3D matrix with the surrounding tissues.
