Progressive, chronic periodontitis destroys the bone of your teeth.This causes your teeth to become loose and can lead to tooth loss.
In some cases, destroyed bone can be partially regenerated.
Bone regeneration requires good dental hygiene, refraining from smoking and a treatable bone deficiency condition. At our practice, we use a minimally invasive procedure to regrow bone. Working with a microscope, Dr. Zimmer introduces growth factors to the area of bone deficiency. The growth factors trigger the growth of new bone to improve your tooth stability.
