Geistlich, the leading provider of biomaterials, has expanded their collection of matrices. Introducing Geistlich Fibro-Gide®: the porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration! This new matrix serves as THE alternative to autogenous connective tissue grafts, which are considered the gold standard in regenerative soft-tissue procedures. Better yet, with Geistlich Fibro-Gide® an additional harvest site is avoided and patient morbidity is reduced.

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is indicated for soft-tissue augmentation:

  • Localized gingival augmentation to increase keratinized tissue (KT) around teeth and implants
  • Alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment
  • Recession defect for root coverage

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® has all you need to succeed:

Made of collagen: a porcine, porous, restorable and volume-stable collagen matrix.

Volume stability: the reconstituted collagen undergoes smart cross-linking for volume stability of the matrix.

Soft-tissue integration: in vivo animal studies have shown ~97% remodeling of the collagen matrix after approximately 26 weeks.

Soft-tissue formation: the porous network of the matrix supports angiogenesis, formation of new connective tissue and stability of the collagen network in submerged healing situations.
