12 exhibitors AAP Annual Meeting — October 29, 2018 The alternative soft-tissue graft Introducing Geistlich Fibro-Gide, a volume-stable collagen matrix speciﬁcally designed for soft-tissue regeneration By Geistlich Biomaterials Staff n Geistlich Biomaterials is excited to announce the addition of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® to its portfolio of collagen matrices. Made from Type I and Type III collagen, Geistlich Fibro-Gide is smart-linked, a unique form of cross- linking, which provides elasticity, strength and volume stability, accord- ing to the company. Positioned as the alternative con- nective tissue graft, Geistlich Fibro- Gide is ideally suited for soft-tissue augmentation around natural teeth and implants, the company asserts. Additionally, Geistlich Fibro-Gide is indicated for alveolar ridge recon- struction for prosthetic treatment and recession defects for root cover- age. “Geistlich Fibro-Gide is one of the major innovations in regenerative dentistry in the last 20 years,” said Dr. Daniel Thoma of Zurich, Switzerland. For more Information on Geistlich AD Fibro-Gide, visit Fibro-Gide.geistlich- na.com. In contrast to connective tissue grafts, which are considered to be the “gold-standard” in soft-tissue aug- mentation and recession coverage procedures, Geistlich Fibro-Gide does not require a second surgical site, is ready to use and has an unlimited supply. “Unlike connective tissue grafts, where you are limited by the patient’s anatomy, Geistlich Fibro-Gide offers variable thickness, allowing the cli- nician the opportunity to choose the desired and optimal thickness for the procedure,” said Dr. Alan Fetner of Jacksonville, Fla. Designing a preferred alternative to the soft-tissue graft has involved years of development and more than 1,000 prototypes, the company asserts, adding that Geistlich has drawn from its vast experience in researching, analyzing and commer- cializing collagen-based products Here in Vancouver To learn more about Geistlich Bioma- terials’ Geistlich Fibro-Gide and other products, stop by the booth, fo. 1117. tailor-made for specific dental proce- dures and therapeutic solutions. In both preclinical and clinical studies, Geistlich Fibro-Gide dem- onstrates safety, efficacy and shows clinical comparability to a connective tissue graft.1,2,3 Indications for use Geistlich Fibro-Gide is indicated for soft-tissue augmentation: • Localized gingival augmentation to increase keratinized tissue around teeth and implants. • Alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment. • Recession defects for root cover- age. 5 (Photo/Provided by Geistlich Biomaterials) References 1.

14 exhibitors AAP Annual Meeting — October 29, 2018 SALVINOSS XENOGRAFT BONE GRAFT MATERIAL INTRASPIN n The IntraSpin™ is a chairside system for the production of platelet rich fibrin (PRF). The IntraSpin system establishes a three-step protocol for drawing and centrifuging a patient’s blood, removing the fibrin clot and processing it in the Xpression™ Fabrication Kit. A thin, compressed layer of PRF or plugs for extraction sites can then be formed, using either the internal plate or the piston assembly. The IntraSpin is intended to be used for the safe and rapid preparation of autologus PRF from a small sample of blood taken at the patient’s point of care. The PRF can be mixed with autograft and/or allograft bone prior to application to a bony defect for improving handling characteristics. It requires only one centrifugation without pipetting, mixing, heating or additives. 3 (Photo/ Provided by Salvin) n SalvinOss Xenograft Bone Graft Material is a nonpyrogenic porous bone mineral matrix for use in periodontal, oral and maxillofacial surgery. SalvinOss is produced by removal of organic components from porcine bone utilizing trade-secret multi-step chemical and thermal processes that maintain the chemical and physical (i.e. – porosity) characteristics of native bone. SalvinOss can be mixed with sterile saline or the patient’s blood. It is indicated for socket preservation and filling of intrabony defects, elevation of the maxillary sinus floor, filling of periodontal and peri-implant defects and augmentation of the alveolar ridge. To learn more about the SalvinOss Xenograft Bone Graft Material, stop by the booth, No. 617, here at the AAP. AD Every component of the IntraSpin system has been specifically selected and engineered to act in concert as a graft deliv- ery. IntraSpin components have been FDA cleared and are optimized to ensure proper material biocom- patibility and clinical per- formance.
