a promoter of soft and hard tissue regeneration
SStraumann® Emdogain® is a well-researched, easy-to-apply gel containing enamel matrix derivative originating from unerupted porcine tooth buds. As a component of embryonic tissues it is designed to promote predictable regeneration of hard and soft tissues lost due to periodontal disease or trauma.
The main component in Straumann® Emdogain® is amelogenin, which assembles into an insoluble matrix under physiological conditions. The matrix has the proven ability to stimulate various cell types involved in the wound healing cascade of soft and hard tissues (mesenchymal stem cells, osteoblasts, fibroblasts, periodontal ligament cells and cementoblasts) towards a regenerative pattern.
