Regenerative procedures are designed to help improve bone density lost due to periodontal disease.
Periodontists may recommend regenerative procedures when bone density has deteriorated immensely. These procedures can help reverse the damage caused by server periodontal disease and can help regenerate damaged bone tissue.
During the regenerative procedure, the periodontist gingerly exposes the bone and removes disease causing bacteria. Bone grafts, tissue stimulating proteins, or membranes can all be used to help encourage the body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue.
Elimination of existing bacteria and the regeneration of bone tissue can help reduce the depth of pockets form in addition to repairing the extensive damage caused by the progressive periodontal disease. Combined with improved oral hygiene, along with routine visits to the periodontist, natural teeth can be retained. The development of various health issues associated with periodontal disease will also be greatly diminished.
