Guided Tissue Regeneration

Why Do I Need GTR?

Periodontal or gum disease causes bone loss around teeth, which can increase the chances for tooth loss. Once a tooth has been lost, the supporting jaw bone has a tendency to disappear over time.

This may make wearing dentures uncomfortable, and insufficient bone can render placing dental implants impossible. 

The Benefits of GTR

  • GTR helps the body to regenerate lost bone
  • Increases the likelihood you will keep your natural teeth
  • Decreases the odds of serious health problems associated with gum disease
  • Saves failing dental implants or bridges
