What is Emdogain®?

Emdogain is used as an adjunct to periodontal surgery as a topical application onto exposed root surfaces, and is a very effective therapy that helps to stabilize teeth and improve the outcome of periodontal surgery by regenerating the tissue structures that anchor the tooth.

Since its introduction in 1996, Emdogain has been used in millions of patients worldwide and continues to be a leading product in periodontal regeneration. The wealth of scientific evidence supporting the product continues to grow. A recent study showed that Emdogain can increase the predictability of surgical outcomes by achieving equal or better root coverage and attachment.

Other recently published studies have indicated that less post-surgical discomfort is reported with Emdogain.

How does Emdogain® work?

Emdogain® Gel is comprised of a number of proteins that self-assemble to create a matrix. The dominant protein in this matrix is amelogenin, which has been shown to be responsible for tooth development, and has been well-conserved throughout evolution. This protein is considered as "self" when encountered by the human body, and therefore, no allergic or immunologic reactions have been demonstrated with the use of Emdogain® Gel. Emdogain® Gel is intended as an adjunct to periodontal surgery for topical application onto exposed root surfaces to treat periodontal intrabony defects. After a single application, Emdogain® Gel leaves only a resorbable protein matrix on the root surface. No additional surgery is necessary. Regain of clinical attachment and alveolar bone has been proven with the use of Emdogain® Gel.
