Orthogen was founded by a group of biomaterials specialists from New York University in 1992. While a division of BioLok International, a publicly held dental products company, Orthogen's founders developed the LaserLokTM line of dental implants and calcium sulfate-based dental bone grafting materials. Orthogen LLC was spun off in October 2007 and continues to develop and market innovative and high-quality bone graft material for both dental and orthopedic applications.
Over a decade of research has enabled Orthogen, LLC to develop novel, patented nanotechnology based dental bone grafting materials, trade-named NanoGen. The research and development was supported by National Institutes of Health through their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program and New Jersey Commission on Science and Technology through its Edison Innovation Program. Orthogen, LLC conducted the research in collaboration with reputed institutes like Rutgers University and New York University School of Dentistry.
NanoGen is the first nanotechnology based dental bone grafting material allowed for marketing by United States Food and Drug Administration. NanoGen undergoes controlled degradation in bone defect and its implantation results in effective bone regeneration. It has been tested clinically for various bone grafting indications in dentistry including infrabony defects, extraction sockets and sinus augmentation cases. Results demonstrated that NanoGen is a highly effective material to treat such cases, and is one of the proven dental bone grafting materials.
