Cytoflex® Smooth Tefguard 25mm x 30mm (5 pack) PTFE (TEF-002)
Cytoflex® Tefguard® is a non-resorbable membrane made of a proprietary micro-porous expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) material. It is ideal for socket preservations and bone grafting procedures. The smooth version of Cytoflex® Tefguard® has micro pore texture on both surfaces.
Allows nutrient permeation across the membrane.
Resists fibroblasts and blocks bacterial penetration.
Excellent Handling & Rigidity. Easily adaptable.
Easily retrievable as one piece
Better host tissue attachment with fewer flap dehiscences
Facilitates tissue regeneration despite flap recessions, or incomplete primary closure.
Available in 12mmx24mm and 25mmx30mm. Provided double pouched and sterile.
Package includes 5 Membranes
Cytoflex® Tefguard is a non-resorbable membrane for use as a space-making barrier in guided tissue regeneration procedures. Composed of a proprietary micro porous polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) thin film, Cytoflex® Tefguard has a surface texture and porosity suitable for adhesion of host cells to the material while preventing passage and integration of bacteria within the interstices of the material. The supple membrane conforms easily to tissue contours, and yet offers sufficient stiffness to maintain a space over the bony defect. The smooth, micro-texture surface is designed to improve flap attachment but prevent tissue and bacteria ingrowth. FDA has cleared Cytoflex® Tefguard for use as a barrier membrane for guided tissue regeneration procedures. The micro porosity of Cytoflex® is designed to resist the penetration of fibroblasts and bacteria, while simultaneously allowing the exchange of interstitial fluids through the membrane. The unique micro porous design enhances the gingival tissue attachment and provides a favorable protected environment for neo-vascularization and repopulation of osteoblasts in the bony defects. The flexible material easily conforms to the bony defects of grafted sites, and can be easily retrieved as one piece after completion of bone growth. The bacteria-impenetrable membrane protects the tissue regeneration site despite flap recession or if primary closure is not obtained.
