September, 25th 2012 -- After receiving the European market release for Curodont™ in January 2012, a further milestone
for the internationalisation of credentis ag was fulfilled. In September 2012, credentis passed the
two-day inspection of DQS on behalf of Health Canada.
credentis ag has met the high quality standards set by Health Canada without any non-
conformities. During this intensive inspection, the quality management system of credentis was
successfully inspected. As a result, credentis is now allowed to receive the import licence for
Canada and to market its ground-breaking product Curodont™ for the regeneration of defect teeth
With this milestone, credentis is able to enter the North American market!
About Curodont™ and Self-Assembling Peptides
Curodont™ is based on the patented “Self-Assembling Peptide”- technology. The technology enables
the formation of a three-dimensional matrix in an almost closed environment. The matrix itself acts
as a scaffold for tissue regeneration, e.g. the formed matrix enables de-novo formation of
Calciumphosphate crystals within an initial carious lesion.
Curodont™, with its main component the self-assembling peptide P11-4, is the first product of
credentis that has obtained market approval (CE-label).
Curodont™ provides dentists with a novel technology for in depth regeneration rather than repair of
caries and similar tooth decay. Applied to an initial carious lesion, Curodont™ forms a scaffold of
small fibres within the lesion. Around these fibres new enamel or dentin can form and grow. Ideally,
within several weeks, the lesion will regenerate without the use of the dental drill or a filler material.
