Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring physiological constituent of connective tissue (especially in the gingival mucosa), where it performs antiodematous and tissue repair functions. The physico-chemical and macro aggregating properties of hyaluronic acid helps to explain its antinflammatory properties.
Hyaluronic acid promotes and accelerates tissue reconstruction. It activates the migration of fibrocytes (cells contributing to tissue healing) and as a consequence healing is accelerated.
Indications: inflammatory conditions (gingivitis, gingival bleeding, gingival retractions, gingival pockets), other tissue trauma (abrasion, tooth extractions, post-surgical recovery etc.). It is also ideal as post surgery treatment, or treatment to patients that are subject to diabetes, radiation or chemotherapy treatment.
