About Emdogain™

What differentiates your clincal success?

True regeneration of the underlying support structures for the gingiva1
  • Straumann® Emdogain™, a biological product made up of a unique group of active proteins found in nascent tooth development, naturally and predictably regenerates lost tooth attachment1,2 with no second surgical site required. Put into practice the one product that has been shown to regenerate the cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone in recession defects in multiple studies. 1,2

*In conjunction with coronally advanced flap

Predictable Results
  • Emdogain + coronally advanced flap = same results as connective tissue graft with less pain and discomfort3
  • In a recent consensus review, the European Federation of Periodontists concluded that only Emdogain or a connective tissue graft could increase the probability of achieving complete root coverage in Miller Class I and II recession defects.4
Odds ratio to obtain CRC for combinations of CAF technique with additional materials. Only Emdogain or a connective tissue graft lead to a significantly (*) higher rate of CRC (confidence level 95%)4
