Just below this blog is a fine study that shows just how effective collagen products can be in postoperative care for patients whose teeth have been pulled. This post offers a look at a similar membrane for dental surgery: pericardium.
Pericardium is a long-lasting membrane, which is precisely what you want when the site in question will be healing for months. Because it is a cell-occlusive matrix, pericardium actually helps the body to heal, revascularize, and ultimately regrow stable bone tissue.
Pericardium products are pliant membranes, meaning that they can be draped, fitted and otherwise sculpted to meet the particular geometric demands of a given site. This helps to create far more solid and secure barriers than you would get from packing materials, or from relying on the body’s own tissue. Wonderfully when four to six months are up, the pericardium dissolves completely, leaving behind a healed surgery site without adverse effects.
