Guided Tissue Regeneration New York City
Guided tissue regeneration is the reconstruction and regrowth of lost bone due to periodontal disease. Usually, a specialized piece of material made of freeze-dried human or synthetic bone is used for its healing proteins and resorbable membranes. This material is sewn around a tooth to cover a crater in the bone that has been meticulously cleaned. The gum is then sewn over the fabric to prevent the gum tissue from growing down into the bone defect. This stimulation allows the bone and the root to regenerate. After four to six weeks, the fabric is removed using a minor surgical procedure.
