Guided Tissue Regeneration
Lost gum and bone tissue can be restored with guided tissue regeneration.
The process involves inserting membranes over bone defects or placing a barrier over a lost bone area in combination with bone grafting to stimulate bone growth or to hold a space for your own bone to regenerate into. The purpose of this process is to encourage your body to naturally regenerate bone and gum tissue which will help eliminate existing bacteria and help repair any damaged caused by periodontal disease. Guided tissue regeneration combined with proper daily oral hygiene and recommended professional maintenance visits will help your natural teeth stay healthy.
