If you have ever had any dental implants done, then you will appreciate this as sometimes the bone is not strong enough to support the implants and using collagen like this helps a lot with re-growing bone.
With little tiny scaffolds of collagen, it can make the difference of a successful implant or one you may have trouble with. BD
/PRNewswire/ -- Collagen Matrix, Inc., the leader in collagen- and mineral-based matrix engineering, announced today that it has received FDA's 510(k) clearance of a new Collagen Dental Membrane derived from porcine dermis indicated for use in oral surgical procedures involving guided tissue and bone regeneration.
This new Collagen Dental Membrane is a nonfriable, conformable, resorbable, membrane matrix consisting of highly purified type I and III collagen derived from porcine dermis. The proprietary purification process results in a purified intact collagen tissue membrane with negligible non-collagenous materials. As the area of regenerative medicine in the dental market continues to expand, the demand for collagen membranes has increased worldwide. Each of Collagen Matrix's six distinct Collagen Dental Membranes has features that distinguish one from the other. These distinguishing features have been driven by the needs and input from the clinicians. Design requirements such as handling, in vivo stability, shape, conformability or rigidity, have been optimized and adjusted for each dental membrane based on clinical feedback and specific treatment needs.
