Gel 40 is made of a collagen matrix (type I and III) obtained using exclusive Tecnoss® process, loaded for 60% of its volume with micronized heterologous bone (granulometry up to 300 µm). The product is in a gel state at temperatures below 30° C; at higher temperatures the viscosity is reduced and Gel 40 can be mixed with hydrosoluble and/or liposoluble drugs. Thanks to its collagen component, Gel 40 facilitates the formation of primary blood clot and the subsequent invasion of repairing and regenerative cells; moreover the cortico-cancellous component provides the necessary scaffold function. The collagen gel component contained in Gel 40 is rapidly and totally resorbed; it is also endowed with exceptional anti-inflammatory, eutrophic and cicatrizing properties. This lipophilia is due mainly to a percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids of the oleic-linoleic series (to which Omega 3 also belongs) directly derived from the raw material. Such components possess a valuable antioxidant action on the free radicals and therefore aid tissue regeneration.
The exclusive Tecnoss® manufacturing process guarantees an exceptional malleability and plasticity: furthermore the syringe packaging provides Gel 40 extraordinary handling properties making this product the ideal choice for crestal access sinus lift1,2, deep and narrow peri-implant defects3, three-wall intrabony defects and, in combination with Evolution membranes, for gingival recessions4. Thanks to the collagen component, Gel 40 facilitates blood clotting and the subsequent invasion of repairing and regenerative cells. Furthermore, the Tecnoss® manufacturing process avoids granules ceramization, allowing a progressive resorption of the biomaterial and, at the same time, a significant new-bone formation rate5. Gel 40 "soft" consistency also guarantees an easy and healthy soft-tissues healing.
