When deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is not enough to restore the health of the bones supporting your teeth, the specialists at Dr. William E. Mason Periodontics & Dental Implants may recommend Surgery and Bone Regeneration Procedures. These procedures involve gently opening the gum to further clean the roots of the teeth. Bone materials or artificial meshwork may be added to stimulate bone growth.
In these procedures, Dr. Mason and Dr. Lamble clean out the existing bacteria to stimulate bone and tissue growth. That growth often helps repair the damage. With a combination of daily brushing and flossing, as well as professional cleanings, there is an excellent chance you will keep your natural teeth and avoid other health problems associated with periodontal disease.
