SC661 - Dental Bone Rejuvenation

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. The prevalence of dental implants is growing; according to statistics, in the US about 70% of people aged 35-44 lose at least one tooth and by the age of 74, 25% may lose all their teeth.  The process of dental implanting involves the removal of old tooth root remains and a mandatory recovery period of the jaw bone constituting typically 3 to 6 months before being able to implant the replacing tooth.

Dental implants are fast becoming the preferred restoration for replacement of missing or extracted teeth or as supports for dentures, crowns and bridges. Successful dental implanting of the artificial root requires the jaw bone to rejuvenate so that it can provide sufficient basis for holding the implant in place and allowing the placement of the replacement tooth leveled to its neighbouring teeth.

Early studies in SC661, propelled by the company's many years of experience in bone rejuvenation using the DT56a complex, have developed a botanical complex, which accelerates bone rejuvenation and can significantly shorten the recovery period required before a dental implant can take place. Moreover, it is also anticipated to encourage bone rejuvenation and thus provide a more robust bone basis for the implant.  

The novel SC661 complex is designed to be applied, as part of the jaw bone recovery management strategy to be applied by dentists in preparations for applying dental implants.
