Zimmer`s Socket Repair Membrane is a specially shaped collagen membrane designed to assist wound healing in alveolar facial plate repair and residual ridge preservation following atraumatic, flapless single-root tooth extractions. It is pre-cut to fit single root sockets, saving the clinician time and limiting waste. The membrane contains graft material by capping the socket with the circular portion of the membrane and helps retain the post extraction buccal wall preventing the bone particles from dispersing into the tissue and preventing the migration of the epithelial cells into the site. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Dennis Tarnow at NYU to help maximize long term esthetic results and function.
