Swiss university trial confirms superiority of CURODONT™ REPAIR in treatment of initial caries lesions
Published: Sep 10, 2018
A randomized, placebo and gold-standard controlled clinical trial, investigating the treatment of incipient buccal caries lesions with CURODONT™ REPAIR was presented at the IADR 2018 in London. In this study Prof. Krejci and his team at the University of Geneva showed that the use of CURODONT™ REPAIR is superior to that of fluoride varnish or a placebo treatment.
For a first time comparing CURODONT™ REPAIR, placebo and gold standard, this double-blinded RCT with a sequential, split-mouth design allowed multiple comparisons between various groups. Based on assessment of calibrated standardized digital photographs the researchers compared the remineralization effect of CURODONT™ REPAIR, placebo, fluoride varnish and the combination of CURODONT™ REPAIR and fluoride varnish. The data has shown CURODONT™ REPAIR to lead to superior enamel regeneration when compared to placebo or fluoride varnish, and indicated a complementary effect of CURODONT™ REPAIR and fluoride varnish.
”Under the conditions of this clinical trial [CURODONT™ REPAIR] caused significantly higher remineralisation when compared to both placebo and gold-standard (fluoride varnish)…” concluded the researchers from the University of Geneva.
The results are in good agreement with previous clinical trials on CURODONT™ REPAIR.

About CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY
The patented CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY is based on self-assembling peptides, which form a 3-dimensional matrix with high affinity for the dental mineral.
In pure form, CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY is used in CURODONT™ REPAIR as a crystallization nucleus for new hydroxyapatite crystals. This gives dentists a non-invasive way to regenerate caries lesions and similar dental defects - Guided Enamel Regeneration (GER).
CURODONT ™ D'SENZ is designed for the treatment of sensitive teeth. It utilizes the high bonding capacity of the CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY to the tooth surface to form an effective protective barrier on the dentin. This quickly protects against painful stimuli.
CURODONT™ PROTECT uses CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY, to effectively protect the enamel against acid.
