Your gums, bone, and other essential tissues hold your teeth in place, but periodontal disease can cause that bone to break down. Bone grafts are often used to help regenerate what has been lost, but another solution we offer at our office tissue regeneration. This method encourages tissue growth in the jawbone.
By placing barriers around the gum tissue, it promotes the bone to grow. To do this tissue regeneration, we will first clean and sanitize your gum pockets. Then we’ll place a bioabsorbable membrane with tissue-stimulating protein between the gum tissue and the bone. Over time, your gum tissue will begin to grow with the help of this membrane. The entire process may take as long as four months, but a successful tissue regeneration service can prepare you for complex dental restoration services.
Tissue regeneration can repair your smile or help to restore lost teeth before a complex dental procedure. Below are some of the benefits you’ll begin to notice after this service.
