Common regenerative procedures include:
- Bone regeneration – periodontal disease can cause your bone tissue to deteriorate, making it difficult to place an implant or perform other restorative treatments. Bone grafting treatments help promote bone growth and thicken the jawbone to provide sufficient support for your other treatments.
- Gum tissue regeneration – gum tissue regeneration usually takes the form of a gum grafting procedure. Gum grafting aims to symmetrically contour your gum line for a more even appearance, and to cover exposed tooth roots.
- Pocket reduction surgery – pocket reduction surgery reduces the depth of gum pockets and makes it more difficult for harmful bacteria to invade and damage your gum tissue.
- Scaling and root planing – this procedure removes the plaque and calculus from above and below your gum line, and smooths the tooth root to promote healing and help prevent bacteria from recolonizing.
