Longer Resorption For Sustained Site Protection
- Fully Resorbable Membrane – No need for surgical removal
- Cell Occlusive Architecture – Inhibits undesired epithelial ingrowth
- Greater Resorption Profile – Allows for sustained healing time of the grafted site
- Easy Handling – May be easily trimmed and sutured when necessary

For Successful Bone Regeneration
The use of barrier membranes for guided bone regeneration has significantly impacted the dental industry in the last 20 years. Findings early on revealed that by excluding fibrous connective tissue, a favorable environment for osteoblastic activity was created. Since that time, research has shown that the protection provided by a barrier membrane results in a highly significant increase in bone regeneration. (1)
With the growing demand for dental implant therapy, the increased number of patients needing guided bone regeneration demands that a clinician have an option for a predictable, high quality, barrier membrane for guided bone and tissue regeneration. Now you do.
EXCLUDE, PROTECT, AND CONTAIN.
Several requirements are necessary for a collagen barrier membrane to fulfill the desired role in guided bone regeneration procedures. The membrane must be able to EXCLUDE fibrous connective tissue, PROTECT the graft from the oral environment for an extended time, and CONTAIN the chosen graft material.
Ousia bioMAINTAIN barrier membranes have physical and performance characteristics, which allow them to fulfill this role. In addition, due to a 100% resorbable matrix, there is no need for a secondary surgical procedure to remove the membrane.
OUSIA BARRIER MEMBRANES
For Superior Site Protection
Ousia bioMAINTAIN barrier membranes are made from highly purified Type I bovine collagen sourced from the Achilles tendon.
While other membranes may have some of the clinicians preferred characteristics, the proprietary manufacturing processes of Ousia bioMAINTAIN barrier membranes result in a unique combination of biocompatibility, extended barrier function, membrane integrity (for suturing or tacking), handling options, and complete resorbability. All the desired properties of an effective barrier membrane for GBR procedures.
When used as directed, bioMAINTAIN provide the necessary characteristics, which allow for the proper environment for osteogenesis.
Ousia barrier membranes may be used in the following procedure types:
- Socket preservation
- Ridge augmentation
- Sinus augmentation
- Periodontal defects
- Peri-Implant bone defects
Ousia bioMAINTAIN has been developed with a proprietary fiber orientation, which allows for optimal space maintenance and mechanical strength.
