Periodontal disease causes bone loss around teeth, which increases the chances tooth shifting and eventually tooth loss. Guided
tissue regeneration can be used to help your body restore or regrow the lost
bone and improve the outlook for the tooth or teeth. If you have already lost a tooth, it can help
restore the missing bone to improve esthetics around and under bridges and /or
improve the site enough that a dental implant could be placed there. Dr. Peavy
uses a variety of materials including membranes, tissue stimulating proteins,
and bone graft materials from several sources. It isn’t necessary to harvest
the bone or soft tissue from you to get good results.
