Titanium is considered in all fields of surgery to be a safe material with a proven track record.
The titanium foil is available in 20 μm
The 20 μm titanium foil is very flexible and can, for example, be used for covering periodontal defects or extraction sockets. In most instances the 20 μm foil does not require fixation.
- The completely impermeable titanium foil is prestressable, stable and acts as a space–maker, e.g., for alveolar ridge augmentation.
- In virtue of its gum-like color it blends optically with the oral cavity environment, if exposed (see figure).
- The matched foil fixation system (“tap in – screw out”) simplifies the installation and removal of the foil.
- The foils as well as the pins are made absolutely bioelectrically neutral by electrochemical passivation, and so contribute to the uncomplicated development of the regenerating bone.
