Guided Tissue Regeneration

Dr. Luis Benitez or Dr. Veronica Longville will then place regenerative materials, such as a bone graft, membrane or tissue stimulating agents, to encourage the body to naturally regenerate tissues in that area. Once the regenerative material is in place, the gum tissues are secured over the tooth root. Over time, your tissues can regenerate to correct the gingival recession.

Benefits of guided tissue regeneration:

  • Encourages bone regeneration
  • Preservation of natural teeth
  • Reverses the consequences of gum disease

This 72-year-old male presented with bone loss on a lower right tooth that is part of a bridge. In order to
save the tooth and bridge, guided tissue regeneration was done by effectively cleaning the roots with
surgical and antibiotic therapy along with bone regeneration. After several months of healing, the pocket
depths have significantly improved and the patient was able to retain his bridge.
