Guided bone regeneration ensures that a bone graft is healing properly without the interference of the soft tissue. Commonly, a membrane is placed over the graft site to keep the new bone and the tissue separate. Since bone heals at a slower rate, the membrane will enable the graft to fuse to the existing bone free from the interference of fast-healing soft tissue. With more predictable and faster healing, patients can receive dental implants much sooner after their bone grafting procedure.
Guided tissue regeneration involves re-growing lost tissue, including the gums and ligaments around the bone and teeth. Using biocompatible membranes, the tissue can be effectively healed and regenerated without interference from other structures at the treatment site. The healthy new tissue can reattach to the teeth without sinking into the bony defects around the base of the tooth.
Periodontal defects such as gingival recession can lead to possible pain, bone deterioration, and eventual tooth loss. Plasma rich growth factors (PGRF) are used to accelerate a person’s natural healing abilities. PRGF techniques isolate the proteins that the body releases to repair injuries. Growth factors promote healing after cleaning and filling of the space around a problematic tooth. Because a PRGF is formed from a patient’s own blood, there are no concerns about diseases being transmitted.
