Growth factor for the regeneration of the periodontium: amelogenins.
The loss of the structure that supports a tooth signifies the clinical onset of periodontitis.
Today, after a trial and follow-up period of over 10 years and more than 400 publications in scientific journals, specific proteins produced by specialised cells involved directly and indirectly in the formation of the tooth and its periodontal support - ameloblasts - can be applied safely and effectively.
A single application of a gel containing a concentration of these proteins, amelogenins, is sufficient to regenerate the connective gingival attachment of the tooth and induce bone regeneration where there is the potential for regrowth.
Clinically, periodontal regeneration is visible 6-12 months after the application of the gel.
