About Curodont™ and the Curolox™ Technology

The patented Curolox® Technology is based on peptides self-assembling into a 3-dimensional matrix, triggering biomimetic mineralisation and repair. The core technology is the basis for all innovative credentis products.

Curodont™ Repair provides dentists with a non-invasive option for natural mineralisation rather than classical repair of carious lesions. Applied to an early lesion, Curodont™ Repair forms a scaffold within the lesion to allow new hydroxyapatite (tooth mineral) crystals to form and grow. Ideally, the lesion will mineralise within several weeks. This effect is observed in a growing number of patients both in clinical studies and daily practice settings. Curodont™ Repair shows tremendous potential in the treatment of early dental caries.

Curodont™ Protect uses the Curolox® Technology to protect the tooth surface from acid attack and to treat unpleasant tooth sensitivity. According to CEO, Dominik Lysek, “Curodont™ Protect has its main benefit in prophylaxis and in the treatment of dentin hypersensitivity.”

credentis, with its regenerative product line, supports the trend towards prevention and early treatment. The ultimate goal is to prevent caries through the use of its regenerative solutions, and frequent recalls by dentists and hygienists.
