CharacteristicsGel 40 is made of a collagen matrix (type I and III) obtained using an exclusive Tecnoss® process, loaded for 60% of its volume with micronized heterologous bone (granulometry up to 300 µm).
Thanks to its collagen component, Gel 40 facilitates the formation of primary blood clot and the subsequent invasion of repairing and regenerative cells; moreover, the cortico-cancellous component provides the necessary scaffold function. The collagen gel component contained in Gel 40 is rapidly and totally resorbed; it is also endowed with exceptional anti-inflammatory, eutrophic and cicatrizing properties. This lipophilia is due mainly to a percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids of the oleic-linoleic series (to which Omega 3 also belongs) directly derived from the raw material. Such components possess a valuable antioxidant action on the free radicals and therefore aid tissue regeneration.HandlingThe distinctive characteristics of viscosity and density of Gel 40 facilitate the handling of the product by the operator, providing a glue-like support. If viscosity is excessive, add a few drops of sterile lukewarm saline and then re-mix thoroughly to obtain the desired density.Clinical informationThe exclusive Tecnoss® manufacturing process guarantees an exceptional malleability and plasticity: furthermore the syringe packaging provides Gel 40 extraordinary handling properties making this product the ideal choice for crestal access sinus lift(1,2), deep and narrow peri-implant defects(3), three-wall intrabony defects and, in combination with Evolution membranes, for gingival recessions(4).
Furthermore, the Tecnoss® manufacturing process avoids granules ceramization, allowing a progressive resorption of the biomaterial and, at the same time, an adequate new-bone formation rate(5,6). Gel 40 “soft” consistency also guarantees an easy and healthy soft-tissues healing.
