Straumann® Emdogain®

Straumann® Emdogain® is a protein-based gel which helps to preserve the tooth by promoting regeneration of lost periodontal hard and soft tissue caused by periodontitis. More than 200 clinical publications demonstrate predictable and natural-looking results, including up to ten years, as well as safe and effective stimulation of new periodontal attachment formation (periodontal ligament, cementum and alveolar bone).
