GEM® EXT porcine collagen membrane has the enhanced characteristics to provide periodontal and dental surgeons with an excellent balance of properties to effectively address a host of clinical indications and surgical procedures where space maintenance is critical.
GEM® EXT is manufactured to strike the right balance among critical product characteristics to deliver predictable results and easily support the clinician’s preferred techniques.
GEM® EXT has been designed to simultaneously achieve moderate adaptability, strength, structural integrity, in vivo stability and provide the clinician the ability to reposition the membrane for ideal placement prior to closure. It has sufficient memory to maintain space for bone and tissue ingrowth. The programmed resorption time of 6 to 9 months, allows for sufficient time to allow for ingrowth and remodeling of new bone.
