What Regenerative Procedures Are Available to Restore Health to Gums, Bone, and Tissue?
Drs. Peter Cabrera and Bahareh Sabzehei of Perio Implant Chicago are the periodontal team available to assist with a wide range of services. In addition to providing routine periodontal care, they also offer regenerative procedures for those affected by periodontal disease or other concerns, including birth flaws or trauma to the mouth.
What can periodontal disease cause?
Periodontal disease, also referred to as gum disease, is a severe and progressive infection in the mouth that can lead to the loss of teeth, gums, and bone. It occurs when bacteria thrive in the pockets between the gum tissues and the teeth, resulting in bone and gum tissue recession. As the pockets deepen, patients may also experience loose or lost teeth. Fortunately, with a prompt diagnosis in the early stages and the combination of treatment with regenerative procedures, our periodontal team can halt the progression, save the teeth, and work to bring the smile back to health.
At Perio Implant Chicago, we offer the following regenerative procedures for patients to consider:
- Bone regeneration. Bone regeneration is a restorative procedure performed to rebuild the jawbone before placing tooth replacement solutions such as dental implants. Dental implants require sufficient bone for successful placement, and bone regeneration or bone grafting are often done to achieve this.
- Gum tissue regeneration. The gums can shrink and recede from the teeth, resulting in exposed tooth roots. With gum tissue regeneration and grafting, the smile can be restored, starting with the soft tissues.
- Pocket reduction surgery. The pockets between the teeth and gums allow bacteria to thrive. With pocket reduction surgery, these areas can be repaired and made inhospitable to the bacteria needed for periodontal disease to progress.
- Scaling and root planing. Our team performs scaling and root planing to deep clean all the exposed tooth surfaces and the tooth roots. It is often used to treat periodontal disease and may be combined with antibiotic therapies to control the infection.
