creos xenoprotect - a natural collagen membrane
Experience the resorbable collagen membrane with outstanding handling properties
creos xenoprotect is a resorbable dental membrane. A resorbable collagen membrane is used for guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures.
It's composed of a network of interwoven, highly purified porcine collagen and elastin fibers, providing the membrane with high mechanical strength.
The fiber mesh holds the bone graft material securely in place, preventing undesired soft tissue from migrating into the bone augmentation site during bone healing.Outstanding handling properties
A noticeable difference when applying the creos xenoprotect membrane is the ease of repositioning and unfolding as it doesn't become sticky when hydrated. It's rehydrated within seconds and adheres well to the defect shape. What's more, the membrane can be cut and pre-shaped according to the specific defect without having to consider any major size increase when moistened.Easy to stretch and suture
creos xenoprotect is highly tear resistant due to its high mechanical strength, and its elastin fibers make the membrane stretchable.2 This makes it easy to stretch over the defect area and suture without fear of rupturing the membrane.Designed to perform
In clinical studies, creos xenoprotect demonstrates good results in the treatment of dehiscence defects3 and in horizontal ridge augmentation procedures.4,5 In both applications, creos xenoprotect facilitates bone gain and supports successful implant placement
