Dental Pericardium Explained

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.

The Power of Collagen in Socket Grafting

At Surgikor, we proudly offer a wide array of bone grafting materials and surgical allografts. The list includes everything from cortical cancellous grafting material to pericardium and collagen membranes.

This article helps explain why collagen remains one of the most trusted materials in medicine, describing its role in socket grafting and the healing process:

Socket grafting is one of the most frequently performed procedures in oral surgery. After a tooth is pulled, the tooth socket in the jawbone where the tooth had been anchored can rapidly shrink and make it impossible to place a dental implant. To prevent this, the surgeon fills the hole with a bone grafting material that combines with the natural bone to rebuild or preserve the bone’s strength. A barrier membrane, such as porcine collagen, can keep the gum from growing into the space.

Unsurprisingly, a recent study designed to examine the improvement in patients with the use of a membrane such as collagen found that the collagen made a tremendous impact:

Computerized tomographic scans showed that bone density quickly developed with the combination of socket grafting material and the barrier membrane. This meant that the grafting material was well integrated into the jawbone. All of the treated sites healed well, and no bone particles were lost as the sockets healed.

The Business of Dental Surgery

One of the interesting things about being a premiere dental surgery equipment provider is that we are privy to a number of discussions about dental surgeons’ business plans. Sourcing and securing bone grafting materials, sinus lift machines and other equipment takes a savvy eye and an experienced hand, and a big part of what we do everyday is simply try to satisfy your budgets.

This recent article offers some good advice about the business of dentistry, and how you can find and retain clients without breaking the bank. This passage is especially well taken:

“If you spend time with your patient explaining the pros and cons of various treatments — composites versus amalgams, versus inlays, versus gold, versus hybrid resins, versus ceramics, versus implants … you give them an hour lecture on the importance of bone grafting, they’re not buying,” he said.

Humans do not buy based on data, they buy based on emotion, Dr. Krieger said. . . . Dr. Krieger said if he can’t sell a case in about a minute, the patient isn’t going to buy it no matter what he says.

Lucid communication, great staff work, and a commitment to fine dental surgery are the cornerstones of a successful practice. And that means using the right tools for the job, and being able to explain why they’re the best.

Our industry-standard bone grafting materials, pericardium and other surgical technologies come with clear and concise explanation to help you make your case. To keep your practice humming along with satisfied patients, stick with Surgikor.

One More Endorsement for Allograft Bone Grafting

We have cited this blog before, as it offers a uniquely lucid approach to many of the stickiest question in dental surgery. This recent answer covers the issue of bone grafting materials for dental implants and procedures, and ends with a simple distillation of the available options:

Q: The enhancement of healing of an extraction site can be done with many materials and sutures, including Gelfoam (maybe with a little tetracycline powder), collagen plug, Foundation bone enhancement by J. Morita, Bioplant by Kerr, grafting with bone material (allograft, autograft, xenograft), collagen membrane, and so on. It seems that dentists use code D7953 for any of those. My question: Is there more than one code for these procedures?

A: There is only one code, and the nomenclature says it is a bone graft for ridge preservation, so bone must be used. It can be an allograft or autograft.

The difference between these approaches is basic, of course: allografts come from other people, while autografts repurpose the body’s own bone tissue.

Our allograft kits represent the vanguard in dental surgery materials, offering vetted and sterile choices to help you heal faster and stronger. To review our full catalog of allograft bone grafting kits and materials, feel free to browse our site.
