Immediate Placement with Bone Graft and Membrane
Advanced periodontal disease can lead to severe bone loss in the jaw. Tooth loss is the most common result of bone loss. Bone that is gone in result of periodontal disease can now be regenerated, helping to avert possible tooth loss by creating a strong foundation for teeth. Osseous surgery is first performed and then demineralized bone material is placed in areas where there is noticeable bone loss. This material stimulates your body to regenerate more of your own bone to fill in where bone loss has occurred. In some specific cases of bone loss, a collagen membrane can be placed alone or in conjunction with a bone graft, to aid in the regeneration of bone. These are highly predictable and successful techniques to treat advanced periodontal disease.
