Emdogain is used to help treat and reverse the effects of periodontal disease and gum recession in conjunction with periodontal surgery. Emdogain is made up of a unique group of proteins called enamel matrix proteins. These proteins are the same proteins that helped your teeth develop when you were a child. The proteins are applied directly to the tooth root and are designed to promote the body to form tissue fibers around your tooth, anchoring it in place.
Emdogain is designed to encourage the reformation of tooth attachment for up to one year.
