If the bone supporting your teeth is weak or insufficient, then it might be recommended that you have a periodontal regeneration treatment. This procedure can be effective in reversing the results of periodontal disease.
The surgeon folds back a portion of the gum tissue to remove the infection. Then filters, proteins, or bone grafts are placed in the affected area to promote the body’s ability to regenerate the tissue and bone. This treatment can help with the maintenance of the natural jaw line. Additionally, a foundation can be created for the placement of a dental implant if needed.
