Prevent post-operative pain after soft tissue grafting
In this case the Elemental granulate is used to cover the donor site, patient reported no post-operative pain.

Avoid bone loss and promote better healing
"The Elemental polymer barrier allowed for improved, successful and uncomplicated open healing ARP." - Dr. Minas Leventis

“Since we use Elemental to create palatal stents on the donor site after free gingival grafts, none of our patients have reported post-operative pain. In most cases it is not needed to suture the donor site, the blood clot is stabilized, we can place the graft faster on the recipient site and patient comfort during surgery increases.”
Dr. Alexander De Greef
"The material allows for easy handling, fast chairside preparation, easy application, in-situ hardening, excellent sealing of the grafted site, stability and no discomfort for the patient. Overall, this is a very simple and predicatable technique to cover my grafted sockets."
Dr. Minas Leventis
"Elemental helps me to achieve more predictable healing progress in connective tissue grafting, ridge preservation, and in combination with custom abutments. It protects the wound and I've observed accelerated healing up to 2 times faster."
Dr. Kenneth Van Stralen
"This polymer with the inhibitory effects of the trace element zinc on pathogenic bacteria in the oral cavity is helping us to better protect the wound in the critical first days of healing. It's also showing promising results as an adjunct to SRP therapy."
