Regenerative Procedures - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

The bone can break down due to periodontal disease. Without bone to hold the teeth in place, the teeth cannot remain in place. To prevent this from happening, periodontists use procedures that will stimulate bone growth. These techniques are called regenerative procedures that aim to grow the bone around the tooth and provide support in the tooth’s root. 

These procedures can help restore lost bone and tissue, depending on the patient’s needs: 

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting involves the process of adding bone to provide support to the affected jaw. It helps in securing dental implants. In bone grafting, your dentist will first perform the bone graft procedure. Then after months of healing, the dentist adds the dental implants. Aside from restoring your jawbone, bone grafting can repair the shape of your face. 

Guided Tissue Regeneration

GTR uses a biodegradable or non-biodegradable artificial membrane. Soft tissue cannot grow into these spaces. Membranes block the rapid growth of tissue cells and allow the development of bone-making cells. 

Proteins

There are cases when periodontists apply a gel containing proteins to the root of the diseased tooth. Inducing proteins stimulates bone and tissue growth.

Soft tissue grafts

A gum graft can provide tissue regeneration in cases of receding gums. To fill in the areas where tissue is sparse or missing, your dentist uses a small piece of tissue taken from the roof of the mouth or donor tissue.

During these procedures, the recovery period of the patient depends on the severity. Consult your Newmarket dentist to discuss your options regarding restoring your bone and saving your teeth.
