credentis ag Opens the Gates to the North American Market

Published: Sep 25, 2012

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 in Canada.

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.
