Zimmer Dental Inc., a leading provider of dental oral rehabilitation products and a subsidiary of Zimmer Holdings, Inc., is pleased to announce the availability of the CopiOs Extend Membrane—a biocompatible and resorbable, collagen-based membrane, derived from porcine dermis—for use in a variety of dental surgical procedures, including Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) and Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR).
CopiOs Extend Membrane offers clinicians the synergy of space and time—promoting optimum resorption and space maintaining conformance. Lasting six to nine months, the membrane’s extended resorption profile is designed to allow implant placement while subsequently providing ample time for unhindered regeneration. In addition, CopiOs Extend Membrane has been designed to conform to the defect with enough structural integrity for necessary space creation. Its cell occlusive nature allows nutrients to permeate while blocking epithelial cells, thereby creating an environment more suitable for successful GTR and GBR procedures, for example.
Clinicians can feel confident in the safety and performance of the easy-to-use CopiOs Extend Membrane. The biocompatible membrane is comprised of highly purified, intact dermis. Supplied sterile, it can be implanted dry or slightly hydrated. Once applied, the membrane is malleable and easy to reposition.
“Zimmer Dental continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to improving patients’ lives and providing clinicians with safe and effective products,” said Harold C. Flynn, Jr., Zimmer Dental President. “With the launch of CopiOs Extend Membrane, we have further expanded our industry-leading regenerative portfolio, which complements our innovative dental implants and tried-and-true restorative offerings. Clinicians can rely on this long-lasting, resorbable membrane for a range of oral surgical procedures—from localized ridge augmentation and alveolar ridge reconstruction to filling bone defects, GBR and GTR—for manageable and predictable regenerative outcomes.”
