Periodontal Regeneration





About Periodontal Regeneration

Periodontal regeneration is a type of treatment that is used to restore the structure and function of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth that have been lost or damaged due to periodontal disease. The goal of periodontal regeneration is to encourage the growth of new bone, tissue, and blood vessels to replace what has been lost.

There are different techniques that can be used to achieve periodontal regeneration, but the most common include:

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR):

This procedure involves the use of a (biological or physical) barrier membrane that is placed between the tooth and the surrounding gum tissue to prevent the growth of unwanted tissue and promote the growth of new bone and tissue.

Guided bone regeneration (GBR):

This procedure involves the use of a barrier membrane and bone grafting material to encourage the growth of new bone in areas where it has been lost.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy:

This procedure involves the use of a patient’s own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors and platelets, to promote the healing and regeneration of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth.

Enamel matrix derivative (EMD):

This procedure involves the application of a protein-rich gel to the tooth roots which help to promote the growth of new cementum, the soft (hard) tissue covering the roots of the teeth.

It’s important to note that not all cases are candidates for periodontal regeneration and the treatment options may vary depending on the individual’s case and the stage of the disease.
