creos™ syntoprotect

Your easy choice of dense PTFE membranes to expand grafting options

Broad range of synthetic non-resorbable membranes, including Ti-reinforced.

syntoprotect PTFE membrane

Purposely leave the membrane exposed to allow preservation of the soft tissue architecture and keratinized mucosa.


Won’t resorb prematurely - you dictate healing time.


Exposed membrane allows for non-surgical removal; no anesthesia required.


Impervious to bacteria - pore size less than 0.3 μm.

Clinical predictability

In two separate studies treating a total of 696 extraction sites using dense PTFE membranes in an exposed technique, there were no reported infections.1, 2

syntoprotect Ti-reinforced PTFE membrane


Incorporating delicate and strategically-placed titanium “struts” with more than 25 years of clinical history and successful use in GBR.


Easy to trim and compliant with the overlying soft tissues.


Broad portfolio with 13 shapes in 2 thicknesses.


Less titanium bulk allows for greater versatility in shaping and placement providing additional stability in large, non-spacemaking osseous defects.


Clinical efficacy

  • syntoprotect (cytoplast) dense PTFE membrane bone loss clinical study

    Bone loss 1-year post-extraction³

    Vertical bone loss measured at crest. Horizontal measured from stent to buccal plate.

  • syntoprotect (cytoplast) PTFE membrane, soft tissue regeneration after extraction poster

    Soft tissue regeneration 90 days post-extraction⁴

    Measured as reduction of the occlusal distance between buccal and lingual gingival margins.

  • syntoprotect (cytoplast) PTFE membrane, vertical ridge augmentation around implants clinical trial

    Vertical ridge augmentation around implants⁵

    Mean vertical bone regeneration.

Designed to aid in membrane stabilization

Hexagonal surface dimples provide a textured surface that increases the area available for cellular attachment without increasing porosity. The textured surface is designed to help stabilize the membrane and the soft tissue flap.
