Can PentOS OI™ Flex be used without a membrane?

If primary closure is not possible, the use of a membrane is highly recommended.

Normally, a dental membrane is used to prevent the epithelial cells from growing into the bone graft site, where new bone is forming.

A Neomem® membrane also helps to keep the granules at the graft sight, preventing migration of the granules. A membrane is also used when primary closure is not possible. However, if the periosteum is still intact, it can be used to achieve primary closure.

If the periosteum is damaged in any way, a membrane, such as Neomem® or Neomem® Flexplus, should be used.
