Developing the technology that can completely restore the natural human teeth, is the goal of Cowellmedi Implant Laboratory.
Cowellmedi Implant Laboratory,
which has been in the center of Cowellmedi’s R&D endeavors,
established in 2004 and has been constantly challenging itself
to develop an optimal implant that meets
the diverse implant placement requirements
based on its excellent staff and equipment.

Developing the technology that can
completely restore the natural human gingiva, is the goal of Cowellmedi Implant Laboratory.
The first South Korean implant enterprise
that grafted Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic
Protein(rhBMP-2) to dental implants,
Cowellmedi has been leading the era of next-generation bio-convergence implants.
What is Cowellmedi rhBMP-2?Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2
What happens when the stem cells and BMP-2 meets?
BMP-2 is a human growth factor(protein) which pediatric can self-produce but adults are disabled to produce by itself.
Therefore, when genetically engineered rhBMP-2 is injected into defective gingiva tissue and bone,
it simulates stem cells in the body and quickly grows into bone and gum tissue.
The procedure of rhBMP-2 growth factor growing into bone
- BMP-2 attaches
to the stem cells.
- BMP-2 attached stem cells
grows into bone cells.
- Nutrition and blood vessels are
formed for bone regeneration.
- The strong bone
tissue is formed.
