Guided Bone and Tissue Regeneration

Guided tissue regeneration is a surgical procedure that aims to reverse some of the damage of periodontal disease by stimulating your body to regenerate some of the bone and attachment lost in the disease process.

This is a minor surgical procedure and is performed with local freezing. The gum tissue around the defect is folded back and the disease-causing bacteria are removed. Regenerative materials are then placed to promote your body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue. Your Periodontist will determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.

Guided bone regeneration is a surgical procedure used to augment bone where a tooth has been lost.  This treatment is done to increase bone volume in preparation for dental implants.
