When you suffer from severe periodontal disease, the supporting tissue and bone around your teeth can be destroyed. Pockets develop around your tooth, which can lead to shifting, loosening, and tooth loss. Bacteria grow inside these pockets causing more damage, and pus may form that exudes into your mouth. If the damage is not too severe we can perform bone regeneration procedures to restore periodontal health.
When we perform a bone regeneration procedure, we will fold back the gum tissue and remove the bacteria causing your periodontal disease. Membranes, bone grafts, or tissue-stimulating proteins are used to encourage your body’s natural healing properties, and begin the process of regenerating your bone and tissue.
Without proper intervention, too much bone is lost, and the problem teeth will often be extracted. If you’ve experienced periodontitis that’s led to loss of teeth, or the need for extraction, then it’s likely you’ve also suffered severe bone loss. We utilize bone regeneration techniques to allow the placing of dental implants to restore chewing function and aesthetics.Our dental team is compassionate, experienced, and skilled. We can help you regain your oral health!
If you need bone regeneration to repair your damaged dentition, then our specialists can discuss the options for your treatment. We will also communicate honestly about your condition and what procedures are the best to give you excellent periodontal wellbeing.
