24 Pack – Absorbable gelatin sponge with 5% colloidal silver

Complications due to bacterial infection commonly occur after extractions and other oral surgery. This absorbable gelatin sponge not only provides effective haemostasis, but is also bactericidal.

The sponge is made of foam gelatine and finely dispersed colloidal silver. Silver forms silver ions in moist conditions and even small quantities of these ions are antimicrobial, and do not develop resistance.  Effective against all oral cavity micro-organisms, particularly gram-negative organisms, it is also particularly effective against antibiotic resistant bacteria. Totally absorbed within 4 weeks.

Indications:

  • Treatment of alveoli and wound cavities, e.g. after extractions
  • Apical amputations
  • Socket fistulas
  • Other surgical treatments eg removal of tumours or retained teeth
  • Wound infections
  • Dressing after gingivectomy

Description

The LONG LASTING DEPOT EFFECT of Colloidal Silver

The finely dispersed colloidal silver provides a large surface for the continuous release of silver ions. As silver does not dissolve easily, it is not washed out of the gelatine sponge, but is continually released as the sponge is resorbed. This provides a depot effect with the product providing an antimicrobial effect throughout the resorption process.

HAEMOSTASIS AND PREVENTION OF POST OPERATIVE BLEEDING WITH GELATINE

The evenly porous foam structure absorbs its own weight in blood several times over, promotes thrombocyte aggregation due to the large surface and fills the wound cavity.

The sponge remains in the alveolus and is completely resorbed within 4 weeks.

HOW TO USE

Supplied in a sterile and ready-to-use blister. The sponge can be cut to fit the wound cavity if required, while two sponges can be used for larger wounds. Care must be taken that the sponge is not compressed. Pressure on the sponge will destroy its structure and prevent the collection of blood within it.

  1. After extraction allow blood to accumulate in the alveolus.
  2. Cut sponge to the correct size
  3. Place sponge in the wound and suture.
