In many cases, it is possible to regenerate hard and soft tissue that may have been lost over time. This may be completed around natural teeth so as to provide a stronger, more stable foundation or in an empty space in preparation to replace a tooth with a dental implant.
We utilize growth factors, in many cases, to enhance our treatment outcomes. Growth factors are materials with special regenerative properties that stimulate your body to regenerate specific tissues, such as bone, cementum and gum. These factors have the additional property of enhancing blood supply to a healing surgical site, accelerating wound healing, reducing inflammation and combating infection from bacteria and other foreign invaders.
Growth factors are derived from a variety of sources, including human donor tissue, porcine tooth buds as well as synthetic, recombinant mechanisms.
