GENGIGEL ORAL CARE RANGE
GENGIGEL is an indispensable Product of intact, healthy gums and oral mucosal tissue containing Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronan)
Hyaluronic Acid in GENGIGEL
Hyaluronic acid is the main constituent of a family of polysaccharides, produced naturally by all the body cells to hold all the components of extracellular matrix together and to maintain the hydration of the soft tissues. So, Hyaluronic Acid plays an important structural and physiological role.
Hyaluronic Acid in GENGIGEL obtained biotechnologically (Not from animal source – not risk of viral infections).
In the case of Oral Tissues inflammations and injuries, for example, hyaluronic acid is broken down and dissolved by the enzyme hyaluronidase. If oral hygiene is poor, hyaluronidase is produced and released by bacterial plaque.
The enzyme induces a loosening of the structure and a slackening of the tissue and facilitates fluid exchange between the tissue and the vascular system, causing mild oedemas to form.
The enzymatic breakdown (catabolisation) of hyaluronic acid by hyaluronidase significantly increases the permeability of tissue and capillaries with the consequence that toxins, drugs and bacteria can propagate more easily.
This in turn leads, amongst other things, to poor healing and tissue inflammation.
We are proud that GENGIGEL is the first product ever containing High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid to be applied in the field of dentistry.
We hold the utility patent for a specific hyaluronic acid. This acid is particularly suitable to re-form the gingival tissues, to reduce oedema, and therefore regulate the return of the gum to the normal physiological state.
hyaluronic acid accelerates the rate of tissue reconstruction.
hyaluronic acid Promotes Wound Healing with its ability to influence both the migration of fibroblasts and fibrogenesis
hyaluronic acid produces an anti-oedematous effect as it possesses an extremely high capacity to bind water (up to 200 times its own volume)
Hyaluronic acid combats the inflammation caused by hyaluronidase-producing bacteria by inactivating the enzyme.
Hyaluronic acid regulates cell permeability.
