Tissue regeneration is important when talking about bone loss, which can change face shape and the ability to hold any dental implants. After tooth loss, the mouth changes. The jawbone can start to resorb as the jawbone no longer gets stimulation as you talk and chew. Some can lose as much as 25% of their ridge width in the first year after losing a tooth. Tissue regeneration encourages the jawbone tissue to grow. Bone loss can affect the appearance of your mouth as well as the health, making your mouth more susceptible to other issues.
The Goal of Tissue Regeneration
Tissue regeneration serves to provide a stable support system for implants to restore the smile. Guided tissue regeneration can also strengthen the sockets where the lost teeth were, which helps bolster bone tissue that is damaged. Tissue regeneration also strengthens areas that have been previously damaged by diseases that affect the oral tissue or bone strength. The overall goal is to revive the mouth into a healthy, structural form that allows for appropriate treatment or procedures.
How It Works
Guided tissue regeneration impacts the bone growth. There are barriers placed around the gum tissue that further guide the growth of tissue. A bioabsorbable membrane is then placed between the gum tissue and the bone. Tissue-stimulating proteins, bone grafts, or space holders are then inserted into the membrane to encourage results. The membrane helps tissue growth and is slowly reabsorbed into the body.
Eventually, guided tissue regeneration creates a healthy, structurally sound base that allows for implants to be stable. This allows for the opportunity of a healthy smile and mouth.
