Why use hyaluronic acid in dental surgery?

The gel of cross-linked hyaluronic acid (xHyA) is used for soft tissue recession surgery, guided tissue regeneration (GTR) as well as guided bone regeneration (GBR). The pharmaceutical-grade cross-linked hyaluronic acid, based gel of non-animal origin is optimized for regenerative peri-implant and periodontal applications.

  • Accelerated tissue healing – Coordinates the post-operative inflammation process and accelerates neoangiogenesis. [1,2]
  • Improved outcome – Stabilizes coagulum and supports tissue regeneration. [1-4]
  • Improved predictability – Bacteriostatic action and reduced pathogen penetration. [5]

Six reasons to use cross-linked hyaluronic acid in dental surgery:

  1. Greater outcome predictability – xHyA stabilizes blood clot and attracts growth factors to support and accelerate hard and soft tissue formation.[1-4, 17,19]
  2. Faster tissue healing – xHyA supports angiogenesis [1,10,19] & tissue formation [12,13,15-17] over an extended period. Its special formulation remains present throughout the various phases of the healing process due to its slow degradation pattern (several weeks).[17]
  3. Lower risks of infection – xHyA’s high molecular weight reduces swelling and discomfort during the healing process.[18,19]
  4. Better patient experience – xHyA’s high molecular weight reduces swelling and discomfort during the healing process. [18,19]
  5. Better aesthetics – Support scar-less wound healing. [18,19]
  6. User friendly – Apply directly on surgical site (in presence of blood), do not rinse. xHyA can be combined with Smartgraft to prepare the „sticky bone“ in 3 minutes.

How does pharmaceutical-grade cross-linked hyaluronic acid work?

The cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel is designed specifically for application in the field of dental surgery. xHyA, as one of the main components of the extracellular matrix, is naturally present in the human body [6-8]. Studies have shown that the prolonged presence of xHyA during the healing process promotes healing by regeneration rather than reparation [9,10].  Besides accelerating the healing of soft tissue and bone[11-13], the bacteriostatic properties of xHyA also protect the wound [5].

Cross-linked hyaluronic acid remains present throughout the various phases of the healing process due to its slow degradation pattern (several weeks) [14]. In addition, it aids the surgical periodontal treatment after application to the root surface and soft tissue. This leads to faster wound closure, substantial pocket reduction, and enhanced attachment [1,3-4]. When mixed with bone substitute material, such as Smartgraft, it forms an easily manageable putty, which may, in addition, lead to accelerated bone formation [15,16] and reduced swelling and pain. [18,19]
