Geistlich Mucograft®

Geistlich Mucograft® is easy to handle compared with autogenous soft-tissue grafts1:

  • Unlimited availability and consistent quality.
  • Ready to use: no need for pre-treatment or pre-hydration.
  • Tailor to defect shape: measure the defect and trim the matrix to the required shape.
  • High hydrophilicity: apply the dry Geistlich Mucograft® to the defect; it will moisten rapidly due to marked hydrophilicity.
  • Orientation: position the compact structure facing outwards and the spongy structure towards the bone or periosteum
  • Good adherence: soaked matrix adapts spontaneously to contours and adheres well to defect.
  • Easy to suture: the compact structure provides optimal suture pull-out strength.
