How often do you get to perform a bone graft procedure? Well, it is quite reasonable that when embarking on dental implants that may involve bone grafting, that the use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR), which involves using barrier membrane in preventing epithelium, is given prominent consideration. This is because epithelium usually regenerates much more quickly than a bone material would, and in an area in which it is not desired. So, bone grafting through the support of guided bone regeneration refers to the use of barrier membrane to direct the growth of newly formed bone and gingival tissue. It is one of the important parts of the dental implants, bone defects and ridge augmentation procedures that many dental patients get to have done on them as well as being one of the main activities that engages most of the dentists’ time. The guided bone regeneration procedure involves the placing of a resorbable collagen surgical barrier membrane in the bone graft site, more especially when a large defect needs to be covered.
One notable attribute of the DSI membrane is that unlike a non-resorbable membrane, that will often require a second surgical procedure for its removal, the DSI resorbable membrane is fully resorbable and facilitates primary wound closure via fibroblast chemotactic properties, even after membrane exposure. Compared to Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membranes, resorbable barriers allow for fewer exposures and therefore reduce the effects of infection on newly formed bone.
The Features of the DSI Resorbable Membrane include:
· It is Safe
· It is Flexible
· It is Effective
· It is Easy to use
The significance of using a resorbable barrier membrane in dental implant procedures cannot be overemphasized and that could be seen in the benefits associated with using it, which include:
Ø It prevents the invasion and in-growth of surrounding soft tissue
Ø It enhances the growth of new bone
Ø It creates and maintains the space above an existing bone defect
The Resorbable Collagen Surgical Barrier Membrane works by separating the osseous tissues from the soft tissue, in other words, it entails placing a membrane over the bone but under the gum.
At DSI, we recognize the need for the patient and the physician to have a resorbable barrier membrane that they could both trust to offer them optimal satisfaction during and after use. It was for this reason that our team of experts had to carefully develop our DSI Resorbable Collagen Surgical Membrane to offer you what you need it for; reliability and which had further warranted us making the DSI Resorbable Collagen Surgical Membrane from collagen materials, so as to ease the choice of surgical technique and judgment of the dental implant specialist, as well as to make the process less burdensome on the patient.
The use of DSI Resorbable Membranes, in particular, with DSI Bone Graft as a support, has produced distinguished and outstanding treatment outcomes.
ü Implantation of defects in the bone tissue;
ü Restoration of congenital and acquired defects of bone and soft tissues;
ü Periodontitis (minimally invasive methods of treatment and reconstructive surgery);
ü Resection of the root apex;
ü Filling of defects after the removal of cysts;
ü Closure of perforations of the maxillary sinus and perforation of the lower-jaw canal removal of the tooth (complicated/uncomplicated);
ü As a stabilizer of the clot.
Since DSI Collagen Membrane is a natural product, many physicians have found it quite useful as a natural wound dressing material laden with many attributes that artificial wound dressings do not possess and these include:
Ø It is resistant to a large variety of bacteria, which is of vital importance in a wound dressing procedure.
Ø It helps to keep the wound sterile, because of its natural ability to fight infection.
So, wouldn’t you rather put your trust in comfort and reliability in guided bone regeneration?
