Bone Morphogenic Protein

A substance that is already present in your blood platelets, PDGF is released from platelets at the site of an injury to encourage and stimulate healing.

EMDOGAIN is designed to treat and reverse gum disease and regression in a completelynatural method. Just like stem cells, EMDOGAIN uses your body’s naturally produced proteins to generate gum tissue, bone, and the ligaments that anchor your teeth to the bone.

Used in conjunction with surgery, this protein is isolated and induces specific cells in our body to form new tissues. During the surgery the bone morphogenic protein is used to bind with a collagen sponge which is designed to resorb over time. As the sponge dissolves the produce is released and the cells create new bones. Once the normal bone healing process has begun, the bone morphogenic protein begins to disappear.
