Regenerative Procedures Los Angeles

Regenerative Procedures Los AngelesDescription: Our expert in regenerative procedures in Los Angeles provides patients with gum grafts to restore tissue that was lost to periodontal disease and bone grafts to strengthen the jaw and allow for dental implants.

Periodontal disease is a potentially serious oral infection that attacks the gum tissues and forces them to pull away from the teeth. Pockets develop, and because these can be difficult or even impossible to keep clean without professional treatment, the infection can drive even deeper and affect the jawbone. The infection then deteriorates the bone, which can trigger tooth loss and permanent bone changes. If you have suffered from bone loss due to periodontal disease, our Los Angeles regenerative procedures expert can help.

Our expert in regenerative procedures in Los Angeles may recommend a regenerative procedure. This procedure can restore lost tissue and help stabilize dental health. If you are a candidate for a regenerative procedure, our dentist will numb the area and perform a deep cleaning procedure to remove plaque and tartar buildup and to remove the infection. After the area has been thoroughly cleaned, bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins will be placed to stimulate bone and tissue regeneration.


Los Angeles Regenerative Procedures

After the procedure, good dental hygiene is critical. Brushing twice a day and flossing every day can help keep plaque under control and reduce tartar buildup. Good nutrition can be important as your body heals. We may prescribe medications that promote healing and reduce the risk of complications. Other recommendations may also be made. Following aftercare instructions is critical to your healing.

If you have periodontal disease, prompt diagnosis and treatment is important for full recovery. Contact us today to schedule your appointment with our expert in regenerative procedures in Los Angeles.
