Guided Tissue Bone Regeneration Santa Rosa and Ukiah
Traditionally, eliminating the gum pockets by trimming away the infected gum tissue and by re-contouring the uneven bone tissue treats gum disease. Although this is still an effective way of treating gum disease, new and more sophisticated procedures are used routinely today.
Guided tissue bone regeneration regenerates the previously lost bone tissue. Most techniques utilize materials that are inserted in the bone defect. These materials are bio-absorbable and stimulate bone regeneration.
