Emdogain is a compound of proteins derived from the enamel matrix which are a crucial factor in initiating the formation of acellular root cementum and stimulate the development of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. The main indication for the application of EMD is the intrabony defects treatment with significant clinical attachment level gains, probing depht reductions and minimal gingival recession. The application of EMD is a simple procedure with less risk than other techniques and less invasive than conventional guided tissue regeneration. The carefully selection of the patient, the use of an adecuate technique and the strict postoperatory control are very important factors on the treatment success.
