Straumann® Emdogain®

Straumann® Emdogain®

Enamel matrix derivative
Straumann® Emdogain® is a well-researched, easy-to-apply gel containing enamel matrix derivative originating from non-erupted 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.
  • Intrabony defects
  • Gingival recessions
  • Class I and II furcations
  • Oral wound healing

Root surface preparation

Avoid contamination of the exposed root surfaces with blood or saliva when Straumann® Emdogain® is applied. A clean and dry root surface allows for optimal protein precipitation [1].

Straumann® PrefGel®

Conditioning of the exposed root surfaces with Straumann® PrefGel® is always recommended when Straumann® Emdogain® is used. Straumann® PrefGel® effectively removes the smear layer on the root surface to support optimal protein precipitation and blood clot adhesion.

Probing and radiographs

Probing is recommended earliest 6 months after the surgery. Radiographic bone changes can be observed earliest 12 months following surgery.

Retention of the gel

Retention of Straumann® Emdogain® is not necessary. After application, the bioactive component in Straumann® Emdogain® will immediately precipitate on the root surface to form an insoluble protein layer. Gel running out of the defect following application is mainly attributed to the carrier substance.

Splinting

Splinting of teeth with a mobility grade >1 is always recommended for 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery since the mobility of loose teeth impairs the regenerative process.

Wound healing

Straumann® Emdogain® is indicated to support early soft tissue healing of surgical wounds as part of oral surgical procedures (e.g. flap surgeries, implantation procedures). In a regenerative therapy with Straumann® Emdogain® apply remaining gel on the complete wound area directly under the flap before wound closure and on the wound margins after suturing to improve soft tissue healing.

  • Induces true periodontal regeneration as evidenced by human histological studies
  • Easy to apply in difficult accessible defects and in minimal invasive procedures
  • Shows less complications compared to membranes
  • Well researched and published in 800 scientific and 200 clinical publications
  • Based on 10-year long-term evidence in intrabony and recession defects
  • May be combined with various bone graft materials
  • Available in 3 different volume sizes allowing flexible treatment options
  • Stimulates bone formation and angiogenesis

Straumann® Emdogain® - Enamel matrix derivative

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.
