REGENERATIVE PROCEDURES FOR BONE AND SOFT TISSUE
If you suffer from periodontal disease, the soft tissue and bone that wraps around the roots of your teeth may deteriorate, forming pockets around your teeth that are ripe for bacterial infection and for deposits of plaque. When in optimum oral health, your teeth should be tightly encased in these supportive structures, which prevent the damaging bacteria from having a place to thrive.
If Cone Beam 3D imaging or a routine evaluation reveals these symptoms, Dr. Wilson can perform a regenerative procedure by inserting material to help restore both soft tissue that may have receded, as well as bone tissue that may have deteriorated. Reestablishing these important structures will seal off the roots of your teeth, preventing pockets from forming and protecting your smile from problems down the road.
