Geistlich Biomaterials is excited to announce the expansion of the Geistlich Fibro-Gide® product line to include two sizes of the collagen matrix used in soft-tissue augmentation procedures in the oral cavity. Previously released in limited supply, Geistlich Biomaterials now offers both a 15x20x6mm and 20x40x6mm size, for both small and large defects. These products with be featured at the International Symposium on Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry in Boston, Massachusetts on June 6th-9th, 2019.
Made from type I and type III collagen, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is smart-linked, a unique form of cross-linking, which provides elasticity, strength and volume stability. Positioned as the alternative connective tissue graft, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is ideally suited for soft-tissue augmentation around natural teeth and implants. Additionally, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is indicated for alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment and recession defects for root coverage.

In contrast to connective tissue grafts which are considered to be the “gold-standard” in soft-tissue augmentation and recession coverage procedures, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® does not require a second surgical site, is ready to use, and has an unlimited supply.
“Unlike connective tissue grafts, where you are limited by the patient’s anatomy, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® offers variable thickness, allowing the clinician the opportunity to choose the desired and optimal thickness for the procedure.” said Dr. Alan Fetner, Jacksonville, FL, USA.
Designing a preferred alternative to the soft-tissue graft has involved years of development and more than a thousand prototypes. Geistlich has drawn from its vast experience in researching, analyzing and commercializing collagen based products tailor-made for specific dental procedures and therapeutic solutions. In both preclinical and clinical studies, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® demonstrates safety, efficacy and shows clinical comparability to a connective tissue graft. 1,2,3
