Periodontal Regenerative Surgery

Advanced periodontal regenerative surgery techniques help restore the bone that has been lost due to periodontal disease. While they can be effective alone in some situations, these procedures are often used in combination with each other.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

This technique uses a “membrane” or barrier to block unwanted tissue from growing into the bone, and allowing bone and ligament fibers to regenerate.

Bone Grafts

With bone graft procedures, bone replacement materials are used to fill in bone defects and serve as a blueprint to guide regrowth of your own bone. Grafted bone can be taken from your own mouth, from a synthetic source, or from a tissue bank.

Tissue Engineering

The utilization of tissue growth factors is the most progressive concept recently added to regenerative surgery. A commercially manufactured product (Gem 21s® or AminoSpark) contains human bone growth factors. 

A second option in tissue engineering is the use of Platelet Rich Plasma. This technique involves the use of a small volume of the patient’s blood, which is processed in the office to obtain a concentration of the patient’s own platelet derived bone growth factor. This gel is used in conjunction with bone grafts and membranes. Platelet rich plasma has previously been used in orthopedic surgical procedures as well.
