Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative Therapy

Regenerative surgery is used to recreate bone and soft supporting tissues lost due to periodontitis. If you have periodontitis, you may be losing bone support around your teeth, and in order to avoid extractions and stabilize the tooth, we may recommend regrowing the lost bone and surrounding tissue with a graft.

The goal of regenerative surgical therapy is to encourage the body to rebuild the bone and other structures that attach a tooth to the jaw.  Over the next few months following the procedure, the grafted material will be encouraged to grow, which will fill in for lost bone and soft tissue.
