Bone Regeneration Therapy
Before today’s technology, the treatment of periodontitis (bone loss) could only arrest the progression of the disease. Today, a better treatment is available allowing you to virtually regrow bone; bone regeneration therapy.
Bone loss due to gum disease results in gum recession, tooth loss, bad breath and an unappealing smile. It is now possible to regain the damage that has occurred and reclaim your smile. Bone regenerative therapy is this process. The idea of bone regenerative therapy is to cover the bony defect with a barrier that prevents gum tissues from growing into the defect next to the tooth or implant. The barrier creates a space over the defect allowing your bone to fill in underneath. Properly kept clean this new bone will support your teeth or implants indefinitely.
