Effectively secure membranes with the touch of a button with this Automatic Bone Tack kit. The unique handle drives titanium alloy tacks that stabilize the membrane. Watch video below. Want bones screws also? Check out our or our GBR Kit.
Stabilize Barrier Membranes with our affordable automatic titanium bone tack kit. The MCT Bone Tack Kit provides dental clinicians with the proper instrumentation for fixating or stabilizing guided tissue regeneration membranes to bone. The Membrane Tacks are small sharp titanium pins used during the healing process by providing an attachment mechanism for the membrane to local and adjacent bone at the surgical site.
Note: Membrane tacks are not intended for long-term implantation, but should be removed upon completion of the healing process.

|Questions and Answers|
Yes, the tacks can be used to fixate any type of membrane.
You can use any dental instrument with a thin flat side to remove the tacks. Gently insert the flat instrument in between the head of the tack and bone and create space. Then grab the tack with a needle holder or alternatively you can use the forceps to grab the tack and pull it out.
The bone tacks that come with the kit are made of titanium. So you have two options: **Option 1.** Leave them in. Since the tacks are made of titanium, they do not need to be removed if you don’t want to remove them. OR **Option 2.** Remove them. You can use any dental instrument with a thin flat side to remove the tacks. Gently insert the flat instrument in between the head of the tack and bone (just under the tac head) and then wiggle gently to create space between the tack head and the bone. Then grab the tack with a needle holder, pinsette or alternatively you can use the forceps to grab the tack and pull it out.
Yes, you are correct. Using bone tacks in the mandible is somewhat different because of the dense cortical bone in the mandible. There are 3 options for placing the tacks in the mandible with the Automatic Bone Tack: - Use a piezoelectric bur or drill to make a line (i.e. score the cortical bone) where the tacks are going to be inserted. This will allow for easier penetration of the tacks and also create extra blood supply for your GBR. - Fire the automatic bone tack kit pull back device twice instead of only once when inserting into the mandible. To do this, you use the tack pull back to insert the tack into the mandible area the first time (it won’t go completely in because of the bone density). Then you remove the instrument, pull back again, place the automatic bone tack kit on the tack, and fire again to fully insert the tack. - Use a standard manual tack holder with a mallet to place or simply push the tack further into the mandible.
The instructions below pertain to the automatic bone tack holder. The actual bone tacks are single-use only. **Instrument Cleaning** > Please follow these cautionary cleaning instructions: - Do not submerge in any solution - Do not use ultrasonic devices - Do not put in a “washer” Instead of soaking and washing, since the only thing that touches the patient’s mouth is the tip of the bone tack holder, to clean this instrument, simply gently rinse the OUTSIDE of the holder only to completely remove any foreign materials, and/or blood. Then dry it. After is dry, wipe down the entire instrument with an alcohol wipe, especially the tip and handle. Then let it dry completely, and after it is completely dry, put it in a steam autoclave for sterilization, as per the autoclave instructions below. Manufacturer does not suggest the use of any abrasive brushes or materials to clean. **Instrument Sterilization - Steam Autoclave** This kit may be autoclaved. Follow the sterilizer manufacturer’s recommended procedure while observing the following cautions: - 15 Minutes At 273 ̊F / 134 ̊C (15psi) - Use Of Hard Water May Leave Deposits - Do Not Use Closed Containers - Dry at Least 10 Minutes - Do not submerge in any solution - Do not use ultrasonic devices - Do not autoclave for extended periods of time (i.e. overnight) - Extended autoclaving should not be confused with repeated autoclaving. Repeated autoclaving will not harm the product.

I am an Oral Surgeon and don't usually review products. If you are anything like me, most of you have tried different products that have worked and some that don't which end up sitting in the office. The Auto Bone Tack kit came with 21 tacks and I am down to 11 after 1 week of use. Haven't used it in the mandible yet, but in the maxilla it makes securing the membrane a breeze. I have used periosteal tacking sutures and screws, which are great, but a lot more difficult to place than these. About to order more tacks. Hope this helps you with your decision.
