Non-Resorbable PTFE Membranes
Cytoflex Tef-Guard non-resorbable membranes are made of a proprietary micro-porous expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) material. They are ideal for socket preservations and bone grafting procedures. The expanded PTFE design of Tef-Guard is a micro-porous material that allows nutrient permeation across the membrane for healthy bone regeneration. At the same time, the micro-pores are miniscule enough to block bacterial penetration keeping the site safe from infection.
The Tef-Guard comes in both smooth and textured configurations depending on your own procedural preference. Both versions are easy to contour and removal. The textured Tef-Guard allows for better flap attachment of the soft tissue surrounding the graft site.
