Advanced periodontal disease can destroy the tissue in your mouth, which is why Dr. Erdle offers guided tissue regeneration. We encourage you to contact us at 847-662-3414 if you believe you may benefit from this procedure and would like to arrange an appointment.
Guided tissue regeneration is a treatment option that harnesses your body’s ability to regenerate and regrow tissue and bone. It involves folding back the gum tissues and removing bacteria. Dr. Erdle will then place a regenerative material such as a membrane, tissue graft, or tissue stimulating protein. This encourages the body to naturally regenerate tissues in that area. Once the regenerative material is in place, the gum tissues are secured over the tooth root. Over time, your tissues will regenerate to correct the gingival recession. Guided tissue regeneration can also be used to regenerate lost bone tissue to further improve your oral health. To learn more about guided tissue regeneration, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We are committed to helping you improve the appearance and health of your smile!
