Geistlich Mucograft®

Geistlich Mucograft® is a unique 3D collagen matrix designed specifically for soft-tissue regeneration in the oral cavity1. It is indicated for gaining keratinised tissue2,3,4  and for recession coverage5,6.

Geistlich Mucograft® provides an alternative to autogenous soft-tissue grafts2,4,5,6. Painful harvesting of tissue is avoided, benefiting patients and clinicians alike.

 

Leading clinicians rely on Geistlich Mucograft®:

  • No harvest-site morbidity2,3,5-7.
  • Less pain compared with autogenous grafts2,4.
  • Reduced surgical chair-time compared with autogenous grafts2-6.
  • Natural soft-tissue colour and texture match5,8,9.
  • Early vascularisation and good soft-tissue ingrowth10,11.
  • Excellent wound healing, also in open situations2.
  • Easy handling2 and application in a dry state.

Geistlich Mucograft® consists of two structures: the compact structure provides stability while allowing open healing; the spongy structure supports blood clot stabilisation and ingrowth of soft-tissue cells.
