A dental membrane is a barrier. It is a natural guard between bone and tissue. It separates the gum tissue from the bone so that the gum does not grow into the bone cavity. When the membrane is not naturally strong enough, or a bone graft has recently been performed, it can be added to the bone graft. The membrane is situated under the gum, over the bone. Collagen is the primary material used to make the membrane, so it is durable and long lasting. There are many different types and styles of membranes, but they can be divided into 2 main categories dissolvable (resorbable) membranes and non-dissolvable (non-resorbable) membranes.
