About CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY
The patented CUROLOX® TECHNOLOGY is based on self-organizing 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.
