Gum disease starts with gum inflammation and tenderness. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. In its advanced stages, periodontitis, or gum disease, can cause gum coverage loss and the loss of bone support around the teeth. Periodontal regenerative surgery regrows these lost gum and bone tissues. If you are experiencing bone or tissue loss, ask Dr. Scott G. Lamming if periodontal regenerative surgery is right for you.
During this procedure, our dentist will use bone grafts to recreate bone and soft tissues that were lost because of gum disease. Tissue grafts are used to replace any gum tissue that was lost. These grafts restore the stability of your teeth and gums and help restore your oral health. In some cases, the loss of upper teeth causes the sinus to become too close to the jaw. There is no longer enough bone height in the upper jaw, so bone tissue must be added, or grafted, between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses. This procedure is called a sinus lift.
Periodontal regenerative surgery, such as a tissue graft, sinus lift, or bone graft in San Juan Capistrano, California, restores the stability that was lost due to periodontitis. Your teeth will become more secure, which will greatly enhance your oral health. We encourage you to contact the practice of Scott G. Lamming, DDS today with any questions or to schedule a consultation.
