Regenerative solutions for clinical success
Professor Werner Zechner, a specialist in bone grafting, implant surfaces and guided implant placement protocols, summarizes his experiences with creos regenerative solutions.
A natural collagen matrix for soft tissue regeneration
creos mucogain is a natural collagen matrix suitable for various soft-tissue indications such as soft-tissue volume augmentation and root coverage in submerged healing.*
In submerged healing indications, creos mucogain substitutes the need for a second surgical site to harvest soft tissue. This avoids the post-operative pain, bleeding, swelling and infection associated with grafting procedures1-3, as well as limits on the quantity of harvestable soft tissue for grafting.
A choice of different sizes and thicknesses. Designed to replace autologous graft material in several indications.4
Use straight from the box. Trim to precisely fit the surgical site.5
For soft-tissue regeneration in submerged healing in combination with immediate implant placement and bone grafting procedure.5,8
“Easy to use with nice handling. The soft tissue responds very well to the material with no foreign body reaction in my patients. A beneficial and promising material.”
Dr. Bastian Wessing, Germany
“creos mucogain can be used in many clinical situations achieving a satisfactory soft tissue stability with simplified approaches, avoiding harvest-sites morbidity.”
Dr. Giacomo Fabbri, Italy
“It felt like an autogenous tissue graft and the mechanical stability is amazing.”
Dr. Miguel González Menéndez, Spain
