Epi-Guide® Bioresorbable Barrier Matrix
The Epi-Guide® Barrier is a hydrophilic PTM membrane that quickly absorbs blood fluid and supports healthy clot formation to maintain gingival flap viability and coverage. Should the barrier become exposed or if primary closure is not obtained, clotted blood within the barrier provides a natural matrix which allows tissue to quickly grow and cover most exposures. The Epi-Guide® Barrier is self-supporting and can be used in many situations without support from bone grafting materials.
Guided bone regeneration
Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) is a well-documented and successful technique used by dental surgeons to correct bone deficiencies of the mouth. GBR uses a membrane to separate a bony defect from overlying soft tissues in order to create an unrestrained space in which new bone growth can occur.
