Over last 2 years, a clinical study was conducted to test the use of NanoGen in infrabony defects in patients with chronic periodontitis. Orthogen LLC is proud to announce that the study concluded, their development—NanoGen—was considered highly valuable in the treatment of periodontal defects.
The study was conducted in India by Dr. Ashish Jain, a periodontist trained at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Goldman School of Dental Medicine. A total of 12 patients, with 30 infrabony defects, were treated with flap surgery and grafting of NanoGen. This product is presented in the granular form and encourages the mineralization of bone.
