Recently, when the clinical situation called for a collagen membrane, I’ve been reaching for OsseoSeal Collagen Membrane. One of my favorite properties of OsseoSeal membrane is its intimate adaptability to the graft material and surrounding native bone. With its ability to contour to the regenerative area, we can be confident in its barrier function.
A few colleagues have asked me about my placement technique for the OsseoSeal membrane.
An easy way to apply the membrane, as shown in the case photos below, is as follows:
Hold the membrane when its dry by the site of application.
Slowly drop small droplets of saline or anesthetic solution. The membrane soaks the liquid and immediately adapts.
Once fully wet and in place, you can proceed to advance the flap without any concern of the membrane moving during suturing.
Hope this helps.
