Some of the most common regenerative periodontal procedures include:
- Bone Regeneration – periodontal disease can cause your jawbone to become too thin to successfully support your natural teeth or a dental implant. Natural bone regeneration, also known as bone grafting, is an excellent way to promote bone growth and thicken the jawbone.
- Gum Tissue Regeneration – gum tissue regeneration is usually performed through gum grafting. Gum grafting symmetrically contours the gum line, covers exposed tooth roots, and restores your gums to a healthy condition.
- Pocket Reduction Surgery – this treatment works to reduce the depth of your gum pockets and to make it more difficult for bacteria cause an infection. Pocket reduction surgery is often used in combination with antibiotic therapy to kill any remaining bacteria and promote healing in your gums.
- Scaling and Root Planing – scaling and root planing is a procedure in which plaque and tartar are removed from the tooth surfaces both above and below the gum line. Following this cleaning, the tooth’s root is smoothed to promote proper healing and to help prevent bacteria from recolonizing.
