mucoderm® - 3D soft tissue graft

mucoderm®

3D soft tissue graft
mucoderm® is a natural type I/III collagen matrix derived from porcine dermis that undergoes a multi-stage purification process, which removes all potential immunogens. The remaining matrix is a membrane that consists of collagen and elastin. mucoderm® promotes the revascularization and fast soft tissue integration and is a valid alternative to the patient’s own connective tissue.
  • Soft tissue augmentation
  • Covering of extraction sockets
  • Gingival recessions
  • Soft tissue grafting in combination with GBR/GTR
  • Broadening of attached gingiva

Immobilization

Contact of mucoderm® with the periosteal wound bed and immobilization should be ensured by suturing the matrix to the periosteum using single-interrupted- or all-crossed sutures

Avoid sharp edges

Cutting the edges of a shortly rehydrated matrix prevent damage of the gingival tissue during flap closure

Tunnel technique

For the tunnel technique a prolonged, 10-20 min, rehydration time of the mucoderm® is recommended. Fixation of the matrix by single-interrupted- or allcrossed sutures is required.

Gingival recessions

Exposure of the mucoderm® matrix should always be avoided in recession coverage procedures. Make sure that the repositioned flap completely covers the mucoderm® matrix. Achieving primary closure over the mucoderm® graft allows blood vessels to penetrate and incorporate the soft tissue graft material. Early exposure may lead to soft tissue graft failure.

Straumann® Emdogain®

Gingival recessions may be treated using mucoderm® and Straumann® Emdogain® together in a single approach. Potential benefits of adding Straumann® Emdogain® to a root coverage procedure with mucoderm® are described in "Collagen matrix and enamel matrix derivative". Make always sure that Straumann® Emdogain® is applied all over the root surfaces before the mucoderm® matrix is placed over the roots.

  • Rapid revascularization and integration
  • Soft tissue replacement without palatal autograft harvesting
  • Complete remodeling into patient’s own tissue
  • Resorption time approx. 6-9 months
  • Can be easily applied and fixed
  • Can be cut to shape for specific procedures
  • Thickness approx. 1.2-1.7mm

mucoderm® - 3D soft tissue graft

After placement, the patient’s blood infiltrates the mucoderm® graft through the three-dimensional soft tissue network, bringing host cells to the soft tissue graft surface and triggering the revascularization process. A significant revascularization may begin after the implantation depending on the health condition of the patient. mucoderm® offers a safe alternative to autologous connective tissue, suitable for a diverse range of soft tissue grafting indications.
