Obtained from derma of porcine origin, using an exclusive Tecnoss® process, Derma membranes are gradually integrated with the autologous soft tissues1. Their strong consistency and resistance allow a perfect stabilization and a prolonged protection of underlying graft in large regeneration procedures, together with a strong barrier action to guide the growth of epithelium and preventing its invagination.
Derma membrane can be shaped with scissors until the desired size is reached; then it must be hydrated for 5 minutes in sterile lukewarm physiological solution. Once it acquires the desired plasticity, it must be adapted to the grafting site. It is always recommendable to prepare a pocket with an elevator in order to stabilize the membrane in the site after stitching the flaps. If this is not possible, the membrane can be stitched with envelope sutures which bridle it with the gingival flaps. N.B.: if Derma membrane, for any reason, shows dehiscences (for example in the secondary tearing of flaps) it must absolutely not be removed, because its plasticity and consistency is such as to allow it to achieve a complete second intention healing of the wound, because of the physiological sliding of the flaps.
