Osseous Grafting Guided Tissue Regeneration

Patients with periodontitis experience defects in the bone around their teeth. The osseous surgery removes those defects and guided tissue regeneration help restore the bone to its natural and functional level. Prior to the surgery, the patient undergoes a periodontal treatment that consists or scaling and root planing to clean the roots and remove the defected gum tissue. A local anesthetic is administered to minimize the pain. Then Dr. Burlacu uses a drill and sharp dental tool to reshape the bone surrounding the teeth. Depending on the extent of the defects, the deformed bone is removed, and the rest is shaped. Bone grafting material is used where the defects are too large to be treated with only reshaping. The grafting material will be protected by a colagen membrane. Once the bones are back to their original state, the gums are stitched back into place. Osseous Grafting (guided tissue regeneration) is a procedure with a high success rate.
