Bringing biology to oral surgery.
Straumann® Emdogain® is a mix of enamel matrix proteins that, when applied to a clean tooth root surface, form an extracellular matrix that stimulates cells and processes that are fundamental for periodontal regeneration1. Numerous scientific studies provide clinical evidence of the application of Straumann® Emdogain® in different indications such as periodontal regeneration and gingival recession. As the first dental implant company to do so, Straumann® incorporates a biologic in the surgical procedure of implant placement as a standard, required, step.
Peace of Mind
Straumann® Emdogain® is backed by extensive and long-term clinical documentation. Over the past 20 years it has been used in over 2 million patients and is documented in over 1,000 scientific publications, including 600 clinical publications.4
As it is a gel, Straumann® Emdogain® is easy to apply, even when the defect is difficult to access.
Straumann® Emdogain® leads to better tooth prognosis and esthetic results. Less post-surgical discomfort3 such as pain or swelling is reported after a procedure with Emdogain® compared to the same procedure without Straumann® Emdogain®.
Straumann® Emdogain® leads to significantly improved clinical parameters in intraosseous defects5 and root coverage procedures9, including in the long term8.
Straumann® Emdogain® for periodontal regeneration
Orchestrating periodontal regeneration.
Straumann® Emdogain® is designed to be used as an adjunct to surgical periodontal procedures. As demonstrated by human histological studies2, it promotes the predictable regeneration of cementum, periodontal ligament, and alveolar bone lost due to periodontal disease or trauma, thereby significantly improving the clinical outcome of your periodontal treatment (compared with an open flap debridement procedure alone)3 as shown by long-term clinical studies.4
Straumann® Emdogain® for gingival recession
Reverse gum recession naturally.
Root coverage is becoming an increasingly frequent treatment request, mostly due to growing esthetic demands of patients. Adding Straumann® Emdogain® to your root coverage surgical procedure means improved esthetic results thanks to more root coverage5 * – including in the long term6 – and more keratinized tissue formation5. Using Straumann® Emdogain® during your root coverage procedure instead of a connective tissue graft (CTG) may lead to comparable long-term clinical results6 as well as improved patient comfort.
*compared to a treatment without Straumann® Emdogain®
