estradiol benzoate

estradiol benzoate (es´trədī´ol ben´zōāt),

n a topical steroid (β-estradiol-3-benzoate) with estrogenic activity, useful in the treatment of lesions produced by diminution of bodily production of estrogens. Experimental administration to aged laboratory mice has resulted in an increased downgrowth of epithelial attachment along the root surface of teeth and subsequent production of periodontal disease.
