Guided Bone and Tissue Regeneration “building Bone around teeth”
Guided Tissue Regeneration to rebuild the bone is the best treatment option.
It is a game-changer that opened a new era in periodontal disease treatment and saved teeth that were considered doomed or should be removed.
Guided Tissue Regeneration is a relatively new treatment. The treatment resulted in saving and maintaining many teeth that were to be extracted. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that results in bone destruction and bone loss around the teeth and implants.
This procedure is used to stabilize endangered teeth. As periodontal disease progresses, pockets of degenerated bone develop in the jaw. These pockets can promote the growth of bacteria and the spread of infection.
To address these pockets, Dr. Zakaria may recommend Guided tissue regeneration. During this Minimally invasive Surgical Procedure, the pockets are cleaned thoroughly, and a membrane is installed between the soft tissue and the pocket in the bone. These membranes are bio-absorbable and do not require removal. The membrane covers the area, so that fast-growing soft tissue is blocked, and slower-growing bone can begin to grow or regenerate itself.
