The #1 treatment against oral lesions recommended by dental and medical professionals

Mechanism of action

High molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural physiological constituent of connective tissue. It plays a critical role in the collagen-making process. Made up mostly of collagen, it is one of the major components of the human body. HA is the most abundant high molecular weight glycosaminoglycan of healthy soft periodontal tissues.4 It is active in tissue regeneration and influences the migration of fibroblasts and fibrinogenesis, thus making the healing of tissue easier. It performs 3 synergistic effects: anti-inflammatory, accelerates the healing process and provides a protective barrier.

Contributing to the barrier function and tensile strength of the periodontal ligament, HA is essential for healthy gingival tissues. In the initial stage of inflammation and periodontal disease, tissue’s requirement for HA increases by 200%, demonstrating its central role in regulating cell turnover and optimizing tissue regeneration. When lacking HA, healing will be delayed and inflammation will continue

Benefits

• Biomimetic : high level of purity that resembles natural HA found in our body
• Combining an effective molecule with an active matrix of polymers
• Film properties : saliva resistant and creates a protected environment
• Iso-salivary pH : does not harm the teeth
• Maximum adhesion : allows HA to remain in place for a long time
• Prolonged anti-inflammatory properties by absorbing pro-inflammatory exudates (hygroscopic)
• Quick action (relieves pain in minutes)
• Safe : multiple indications and no known drug interaction or side effect
• Sweetened with xylitol : does not promote tooth decay

Medicinal Ingredients

High molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural physiological constituent of connective tissues. It is the most abundant high molecular weight glycosaminoglycan of healthy soft periodontal tissues.4

Xylitol is a 100% natural sweetener derived from vegetable sources. Twenty years of research shows Xylitol efficacy treating dry mouth and reducing tooth decay.

Testimonials

I have had such good response to the Gengigel! Wow. I've had some nasty, big, long subling ulcers come along and I applied the gel chair side and the patients reported relief from the gel in minutes- amazing. Patients are so grateful! Yesterday I tried it on a geographic tongue that was sore with a "flare up" and same thing- sheer excitement for the patient. She's suffered with these bouts of tenderness forever, but not anymore!

I randomly stumbled upon gengigel in the pharmacy when searching for a treatment for a terrible canker I had. Ive had cankers my whole life, I get them from mouth trauma (e.g. biting cheek). Anyways, Ive tried everything.. alum, baking soda, kanka, etc etc. Nothing really works. Well, gengigel has been a life saver. You may not feel it working when you initially put it on, but this stuff got rid of my canker in 2 DAYS, 2 DAYS people. Thats unheard of for me. The best part is it easy to apply (don't need to let it try), it tastes like nothing, and its NOT toxic is swallowed. I can't even believe how well it works! I apply several times a day and have seen great result. Would def purchase again.
