Restore Your Smile With Us Today
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, periodontal disease affects one in every two Americans aged 30 and over. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that leads to inflamed, bleeding,g and receding gums. The infection spreads to surrounding tissues and bone, ultimately resulting in tooth loss.
If you’ve got periodontal disease, periodontal regeneration therapy may be an effective solution for you. Conventional periodontal treatments concentrate on eliminating the infected areas to prevent further harm, but regeneration treatmentscano accelerate healing and rebuild strength in the affected regions. At Westbury Dental Spa, we specialize in periodontal regeneration therapy that can help you enhance and rebuild your dental health.
Learn More About Periodontal Regeneration Therapy
The objective of periodontal regeneration therapy is to entirely reconstruct the supporting structure of your teeth that has been destroyed because of inflammation or injury. It is distinguished by the insertion of collagen fibers to repair damaged structures and restore your teeth’s ability to anchor to the jaw. This is accomplished by regenerating the periodontal ligament, cementum, and alveolar bone. These are the architectural and functional tissues that work together to help your teeth attach securely to the gums and jaw. For regeneration-treated sites to thrive in the long run, plaque management and regular maintenance are essential.
Signs You Need Periodontal Regeneration Therapy
Approximately 90 percent of patients suffering from periodontal disease require only deep cleaning (scaling) and root planing procedures in conjunction with antibiotics. The remaining 7 percent require surgical procedures, while 3 percent require a regeneration procedure. Patients who have a moderate to severe Case Type III, or higher, form of periodontal disease is most suitable for periodontal regeneration treatment.
Benefits of Periodontal Regeneration Therapy
Regeneration therapy for periodontal disease is a versatile treatment option that can be tailored to your specific requirements. To combat bone loss caused by periodontal disease, we might propose a mix of regenerative treatments with varying benefits, including:
- Bone grafting – Periodontal disease frequently leads to bone loss, so bone grafting is a technique that supports your jaw to prevent your teeth from loosening and falling out.
- Guided tissue restoration – This procedure strengthens the bone beneath your gums. A thin piece of membrane is placed over the bone to reinforce it. The membrane offers structure to your bone while it recovers. It guides and supports natural bone development in regions of inadequate tissue or bone density, allowing your mouth to function properly.
- Growth factors – These are potent substances existing naturally in the human body that aid in wound healing. Growth factors derived from platelets may be used to accelerate your recovery post-surgery. The growth factor solution is highly concentrated to facilitate the regeneration of your gums, tissues, and bone.
