While your teeth are held in place by bone and other soft tissues, periodontal disease can cause bone and these tissues to deteriorate. Using regenerative procedures your dentist can stimulate the growth of new tissues. By healing the bone in the affected area, the gums are given the space and time they need to grow back and are able to support teeth in a more stable way. Getting this tissue to regrow will also extend the life of the affected tooth, so that an extraction and implant are not needed.
Stronger tooth support
Less bacterial regrowth
First your dentist will place a membrane between the flap of gums and the bone, allowing the bone material to regrow itself over several days. Over time, the membrane and stitches will dissolve on their own, leaving a healthier structure for your teeth.
