Straumann Emdogain is an easy-to-apply, protein-based gel that is designed to promote predictable regeneration of lost periodontal hard and soft tissues caused by periodontitis, helping to save and preserve the tooth.1 Easy to apply with prefilled syringes, it is convenient to use and easily integrated into periodontal surgery.

Biological Guided Regeneration for Various Indications
Straumann Emdogain has documented clinical results in intrabony defects, recession defects, or furcation defects, either alone or with bone graft materials,** such as Straumann AlloGraft.
**Allograft, autograft, bone-derived xenograft, beta-TCP or bioactive glass.
In combination with boen graft materials in wide defects or where additional soft tissue support is needed.
Regenerate new bone and tissue naturally.
Individuals treated with Emdogain have experienced bone fill within 14 months following treatment.6
