Periodontal regeneration (Bone regeneration and Tissue Regeneration)
Periodontal tissue was regenerated around this tooth. Periodontal pocket was reduced to healthy condition and now this tooth is saved and can be maintained.
Today’s advanced treatment – when managed by the periodontal specialist using a predictable and conservative approach – make it possible to regenerate soft tissue and bone around natural teeth.
What is periodontal regeneration?
In some cases, we may recommend a regenerative procedure when the bone and gum tissue supporting your teeth has been destroyed due to periodontal disease. Guided bone regeneration, or guided tissue regeneration, can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue and stabilize endangered teeth.
Am I a candidate for periodontal regeneration?
Certain types of bone destruction will respond better to periodontal regenerative procedures. If you have bone loss as a result of periodontal disease, we encourage you to contact us and schedule an appointment. Your first visit will include a thorough exam to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure and a detailed explanation to answer all of your questions.
Periodontal regenerative procedure
During this procedure, we will fold back your gum tissue and remove the disease-causing bacteria. Membranes, bone grafts or growth factors can be used to encourage your body's natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue. Your gum will be sutured back in place to enhance periodontal healing process.
What are the benefits?
Eliminating existing bacteria and regenerating bone and tissue helps to reduce pocket depth and repair damage caused by the progression of periodontal disease. With a combination of your daily oral hygiene and professional maintenance care by us and our devoted hygienist, you'll increase the chances of keeping your natural teeth – and decrease the chances of other health problems associated with periodontal disease.
