Guided Tissue Regeneration
Your bone and gum tissue should fit snugly around your teeth. When you have periodontal disease, the supporting tissues and bone are destroyed and pockets develop.
If too much bone is lost, the teeth will need to be extracted. Dr Rosenberg and his associates may recommend a regenerative procedure when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed. These procedures can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue. Membranes (filters), bone grafts, or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue. There are many options to enhance support for your teeth and to restore your bone to a healthy level. We will discuss your best options with you.
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 daily oral hygiene and professional maintenance care, you will increase the chances of keeping your natural teeth.
