Non-Reinforced PTFE membrane
The Non-Reinforced membrane has a two layer design. The outer layer consists of tissue friendly PTFE that is resistant to bacteria. The inner PTFE layer has an expanding texture that enables predictable hard tissue integration. This combination results in a membrane that is easy to handle and protects the augmentation site in a predictable manner.
Soft tissue side
The soft tissue side of the membrane has a tight texture. This enables soft tissue interaction which leads to membrane stability. It also creates a barrier function which minimizes the risk of infection.
Coverage of smaller bone defects where the surrounding bone provides sufficient stability. Examples are extraction sockets, smaller dehiscences or fenestrations, or coverage of the lateral window after sinus elevation procedure.
The membrane material is polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Membrane thickness is 0.25 mm.
The different surface textures and porosities are created by varying nodes and fibrils within the PTFE material matrix.
NeoGen® Non-Reinforced membranes are provided sterile and double packed in a box and a pouch. Content of the pouch is sterile. The membranes cannot be re-sterilized.
