25 Year Follow up with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen®

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Drawing from his company's rich history in bone and collagen processing, Dr. Peter Geistlich formulated a propriety technique in the 1980's to remove organic components from bone without altering the natural microstructure and composition. This innovation served as the foundation for Geistlich Bio-Oss® which has ever since been the world's leading xenogeneic sourced bone substitute in dentistry.

Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen®, a combination of Geistlich Bio-Oss® and 10% porcine collagen further enhanced this platform of bone substitutes and is now recognized in a 25 year follow up case series from Dr. Ueli Grunder.

"Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® is so easy to work with. The ability to cut and customize the graft material for it to be placed precisely where I need it, brings my practice value. We have seen excellent long-term clinical results, dating more than 25 years supported with histological samples of newly generated bone with Geistlich Bio-Oss Collagen® in combination with a non-resorbable membrane after 15 years."

- Dr. Ueli Grunder from Zurich, Switzerland.
