In the battle against periodontal disease, one of the most significant challenges is the management and repair of bone loss. This condition not only undermines the structural integrity of one’s dental framework but also poses a serious threat to dental health, potentially leading to tooth loss. However, with advancements in periodontal medicine, there is hope for patients experiencing bone loss. At Metro West Orthodontics & Periodontics, we specialize in cutting-edge bone regeneration techniques that aim to restore not only the health but also the strength of your jawbone, providing a solid foundation for your teeth.

Our bone regeneration treatments are meticulously designed to counteract the effects of periodontal disease. The process begins with a comprehensive cleaning of the affected area to eliminate bacteria and any buildup of plaque or tartar. This is crucial for preparing the site for regeneration. Following this, our skilled periodontists will employ innovative strategies to encourage the natural regeneration of bone.

Bone Regeneration Procedures:

  • Autologous Bone Grafting: This method uses the patient’s own bone tissue, harvested from another site in the mouth or body, to repair the damaged area. This procedure is highly effective because it reduces the risk of rejection and promotes better integration and bone growth.
  • Allograft Bone Grafting: Utilizing bone from a donor, this procedure is beneficial for patients who may not have sufficient bone available for an autologous graft. It undergoes rigorous processing and sterilization to ensure safety and compatibility.
  • Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR): A revolutionary approach that involves placing a barrier membrane around the affected area. This membrane serves a dual purpose: it protects the site from unwanted tissue intrusion and directs the growth of new bone.
  • Growth Factor Enhanced Regeneration: This cutting-edge technique involves applying bioactive proteins or growth factors to stimulate and accelerate bone formation. These proteins mimic the body’s natural healing processes, encouraging the growth of new, healthy bone tissue.
