Synthetic PTFE membrane PermaPro® PermaPro® is an exceptionally thin, non-resorbable, temporary implantable and biocompatible membrane. It is composed of biologically inert, high-density polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), which acts as an efficient barrier against bacterial and cellular penetration, and can therefore be used for open healing in certain indications. Ideal for following indications For the regeneration of extraction sockets (socket und ridge preservation) For use as a space-creating barrier in guided bone regeneration (GBR) and guided tissue regeneration (GTR) For covering bone defects during surgical procedures in periodontology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral surgery, and implant dentistry Product features 100% synthetic PTFE barrier membrane Ultra-thin (approx. 0.08 mm) Impervious to bacteria due to dense structure Easily removable due to minimal tissue ingrowth into the surface structure No need for primary soft tissue closure (indication-dependent) [24, 25] Easy recovery thanks to blue color Rounded edges for minimal tissue trauma Easy fixation with sutures or pins Higher dimensional stability compared to commercially available collagen membranes Augmentation outside the ridge contour Synthetic nature – no religious or dietary conflicts Exposure – situations where primary wound closure is not desired (indication dependent) SEM picture of PermaPro® at 30-fold magnification 12| Biomaterials Product catalog 2024
