Your treatment plan will depend on the severity of your disease and the extent of the damage to your teeth, gums and other oral tissues. Some common regenerative treatments include:
- Gum Tissue Regeneration – This type of regenerative treatment is typically a gum graft and is recommended when the gums have receded from the teeth.
- Pocket Reduction Surgery – Also known as gingivectomy, this treatment reduces the depth of gum pockets so that harmful bacteria cannot invade your gum tissue as easily. It may also include a thorough cleaning and an antibiotic treatment.
- Scaling and Root Planing – This treatment works by removing plaque and calculus from the teeth and tooth roots, smoothing the roots to promote healing and discourage bacteria from recolonizing the area. It is often combined with other treatments to provide the best results for your oral health.
