I’ve been in dentistry for over 30 years and I am still constantly learning!

GUM SURGERY IMPROVEMENTS

Last Thursday I attended a seminar sponsored by Straumann, a leading supplier of specialty supplies for dental surgery. The speaker was Dr. Bruce Edelstein,  A HIGHLY REGARDED Atlanta periodontist.    DR. EDELSTEIN  shared his experiences with some periodontal and implant surgeries he has performed over the years, giving an historical perspective on his profession.
THE ENTIRE TALK WAS QUITE INTERESTNG BUT ONE THING IN PARTICULAR CAUGHT MY ATTENTION AND THAT WAS  the use of A PRODUCT CALLED Emdogain.  UNBELIEVABLY,this material is harvested from the growing tooth buds (pre-tooth material) in fetal pigs. Wow! And they come from Sweden where the product is harvested.
The advantage for the surgeon and patient is that healing is faster, defects in the bone are filled in better, plus there is considerably less discomfort after the procedure. Dr. Edelstein was able to show with visual evidence the improved results he has achieved with this great product.
If you are interested in learning more about this product there is an article in Wikipedia that expands on this material’s discovery and use.
It’s nice to know that research CONTINUES TO YIELD  such great products for use WHEN COMPLICATIONS ARISE.  AND AT LOHMANNDENTAL WE WILL KEEP ON TOP OF THE LATEST RESEARCH ON NEW MIRACLE PRODUCTS AND MATERIALS.  THEY  WILL BE THERE FOR YOU IF YOU NEED THEM.  BUT BETTER YET, WE WANT TO HELP CORRECT YOUR PROBLEMS BEFORE YOU ARE IN NEED OF ONE OF THESE MIRACULOUS PRODUCTS.
