Absorbable Collagen Wound Dressing
CollaForm® products have an absorption time of approximately 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the patient’s age or metabolism. The products are soft, white, and pliable absorbable collagen, especially when hydrated.
CollaForm® plugs and singles are fabricated from a native fibrous collagen matrix derived from purified bovine Achilles tendon. The raw collagen products are imported from New Zealand where bovine spongiform encephalopathy has never been reported.
The products do not stick to instruments and can be applied easily to a bleeding surgical site. The products are non-toxic and non-pyrogenic. Products are indicated for single use only.
Each CollaForm® product is supplied sterile and packaged individually in a double pouch or blister tray in a box of 5 units.
A collagen dressing provides a healing environment for moist areas of the body, such as the mouth. It can be used after dental surgery to help reduce blood loss, promote blood clots, and prevent dry sockets. CollaForm absorbable wound dressing is made from bovine collagen taken from the animal’s Achilles tendon. It helps promote the body’s natural healing response by providing additional collagen enzymes that the body can absorb and use for new tissue growth. Since the collagen wound dressing can be naturally absorbed, usually within four to six weeks, there is no need to replace or remove the dressing. This makes CollaForm singles an effective and low-hassle solution to maintaining a graft extraction site, and an easy way to assist in ridge preservation post-operation. These wound dressing singles are highly flexible and malleable, allowing them to be molded into any shape to fill in complicated gaps. They do not stick to surgical instruments, and they become even easier to shape when wet, making them an ideal plug for bleeding or exposed areas of the mouth.
