Hard & Soft Tissue Grafting

When bone or gum tissue is destroyed because of periodontitis, we can take action to stop, and in some cases reverse, the problem by performing hard and soft tissue grafting.

Hard Tissue Grafting

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 2.19.58 PMHard tissue, or bone, grafting can stimulate bone growth by replacing lost bone with either natural or synthetic bone where it was lost. Along with that procedure, we can also perform guided tissue regeneration to prevent the gum tissue from growing into the area where the bone should be.

Soft Tissue Grafting

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 2.20.08 PMSoft tissue, or gum, grafting helps correct and prevent the progression of receding gums. As gums deteriorate, they expose the roots of your teeth and make them more sensitive and prone to decay. By taking tissue from another area of your gum or mouth or from a donor, or using synthetic material to cover tooth roots that are exposed, roots gain protection as further tissue loss is prevented.
