If you have periodontal disease, you might be in danger of
losing your teeth. Dental Health & Aesthetics Center is here to show you
how a dental technology known as guided tissue regeneration can help you retain
your teeth and your smile. Let Dr. Claire Cho show you how easy it can be to
keep your teeth and improve the overall health of your teeth.
What It Is
Guided tissue regeneration, also known as GTR, makes it
possible for your tissues and bone to grow around the teeth you’re in danger of
losing to periodontal disease. What makes this option different from others
designed to regrow your teeth and bones is GTR is predictable and not as
limited as other treatment options. What’s more is alternate treatment options
might require that you lose gum tissue, which can compromise the general
appearance of your teeth and smile.
How It Works
During GTR, your gums are separated from the threatened
tooth before all infected tissue is removed and the tooth is cleaned. A
protective membrane is then placed against the tooth before the gum is put back
in place. It’s as simple as that.
While there are other things you can do to safeguard your
teeth, GTR is one of your best options. One of the biggest reasons for this is
that tissue regeneration is easier to predict when compared with other
treatment options. What’s more is you’ll likely find that healing from GTR is
faster than similar treatments. With all this in mind, know that the patient
determines how well the results are. It’s up to you to take proper care of
yourself and your teeth after your treatment, otherwise, you might not get the
results you expect.
