Bone Regeneration and Regenerative Tissue Procedures
Procedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.
When the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed due to periodontal disease, Dr. Heaton may recommend a regenerative procedure. These advanced technology procedures can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue.
During these procedures, Dr. Heaton folds back gum tissue and removes disease-causing bacteria. Membranes that serve as filters, bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue.
Eliminating existing bacteria and regenerating bone and tissue helps 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’ll increase the chances of keeping your natural teeth – and decrease the chances of other health problems associated with periodontal disease.
