Tissue Regeneration 1 - 2 hrs

Healthy gums cling tightly to the necks of your teeth. When gums become infected due to periodontal disease, they pull away from the tooth surface in response to the infection, creating deep pockets around your teeth. The destructive bacteria thrive in these deepened pockets, resulting in bone loss, periododntal abscess etc.

To eliminate this bacterial "breeding ground," regenerate the missing structures and prevent the tooth loss, one of the options we recommend is a guided tissue regeneration procedure which will restore health to your teeth and gums.

First, we thoroughly numb the affected area. We will carefully separate your gums from the teeth. This creates a small flap, giving us access to the area so we can gently remove any plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the exposed root.

After the detoxification of the root surface, we then place the new bone tissue and collagen membrane strategically over the prepared area, and secure it into place with a few tiny sutures.

After the site heals, usually within a few weeks, the root surface is covered and protected, and your tooth support and its prognosis will be greatly improved.
