Introducing Geistlich

Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is a volume-stable collagen matrix, specifically designed for soft-tissue regeneration.

As the alternative connective tissue graft, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is ideally suited for soft-tissue augmentation around natural teeth and implants, as a submerged scaffold where an increase in soft-tissue thickness is clinically desired. Additionally, Geistlich Fibro-Gide® is indicated for alveolar ridge reconstruction for prosthetic treatment and recession defects for root coverage.

All you need to succeed

Made of Collagen

A porcine, porous, resorbable and volume-stable collagen matrix.1

Volume Stability

The reconstituted collagen undergoes smart cross-linking for volume stability of the matrix.1

Soft-Tissue Integration

In vivo animal studies have shown ~ 97% remodeling of the collagen matrix after approximately 26 weeks.4

Soft-Tissue Formation

The porous network of the matrix supports angiogenesis, formation of new connective tissue and stability of the collagen network in submerged healing situations.2,3

at a Glance

Flap Design

Use your preferred flap design. A generous release of the flap is the key to successful healing by complete coverage of the matrix (submerged healing).

Precise Trimming

Using a scalpel will help in achieving smooth edges and bevels for improved wound adaptation and precise fit of the matrix.


The thickness of Geistlich Fibro-Gide® close to the wound margins should be reduced to avoid dehiscence during the healing phase.


When hydrated the matrix will adhere rapidly. Suturing the device to the underlying soft-tissue is not always necessary.

Wound Closure

Tension-free closure of the flap is key for complication-free healing and may avoid any dehiscences.


Clinical experience shows a low incidence of wound healing complications.3,5

Fit to Size

The matrix can be cut and trimmed in a dry or wet state with scissors and/or a scalpel and can be adjusted in size or thickness to achieve the desired augmentation.

Volume Changes

Swelling of the device upon wetting must be taken into account when determining final dimensions, as the matrix will gain approximately 25% in volume.


Geistlich Fibro-Gide® can be applied in either a dry or wet state upon individual preference. Pre-wetting can be done with the patient’s own blood, you may also dampen with sterile saline solution, but do not fully hydrate the matrix.

In Situ Adaptation

Prior to wound closure, ensure a tension-free flap and complete coverage of the matrix.


As with any new product, initially you will experience some differences in the handling properties and performance of the matrix.
