Guided Tissue Bone Regeneration near 60004
Traditionally, gum disease has been addressed by eliminating the gum pockets by trimming away the infected gum tissue and recontouring the bone. This process is a great way to eliminate the gum pocket and reduce the number of bacteria, which can help prevent the spread of infection. Your doctor may also recommend tissue regeneration to help eliminate the pocket. During this procedure, the pockets are thoroughly cleaned and a membrane is placed between the soft tissue and the bone. The membrane can help prevent the fast growing soft tissue from filling the pocket, which can promote the slower growing bone to regenerate and fill in the pocket!
