Gum disease can damage gum tissue as well as your jaw bone. Regenerative procedures are used to regenerate damaged gums or bones. Cleaning the gum pockets and using regenerative procedures to regenerate bone and gum tissue helps slow down the progression of gum disease. This process makes it possible to repair the damage caused by gum disease. Regenerative procedures are used to treat gum disease because if gum disease reaches an advanced stage, it creates many other problems that are very difficult to deal with. Dentists try to bring the gum disease under control by cleaning the bacteria and plaque because regeneration cannot be successful if there are harmful bacteria present.
Why are regenerative procedures needed?
Gum disease or periodontitis is a problem where bacteria and tartar collect in the gum pockets. Gum disease starts damaging the gum tissue and jaw bone when it reaches the advanced stage. Regenerative procedures are used to eliminate or slow down gum disease. These procedures are also used to reduce the size of the gum pockets where problem-causing bacteria and plaque are collected. It is important to treat gum disease, and it is also very important to repair the damage caused by the gum disease.
If this process is successful, it can save natural teeth by making the jaw bone stronger. The outcome of regenerative procedures depends on the purpose. In some cases, the purpose of the procedure is to support artificial teeth like dental implants, and in many other cases, the purpose is to slow down the progression of gum disease. These procedures are also very useful in repairing the damage caused by periodontitis.
A very important part of regenerative procedures is healing. Success and failure of the procedure depend on how well the healing goes, that is why it is very important to make sure that healing is closely monitored. The healing process does take some time, but once the healing is completed, you will see very good results. Jaw bone and gum tissues have a very good regenerative capacity, but if we want to see good results, we have to make sure that the healing process goes right. Here are a few things you should do to make sure that the healing process goes well:
Take your meds – After the regenerative surgery, your periodontist will give you a list of medicines that you will have to take on time to make sure that your healing goes well. These medicines are very important for the healing process, so make sure that you are taking these meds on time. These meds would include antibiotics and some other drugs that help with healing and regeneration. Make sure you stick to a schedule and stay disciplined.
Monitoring the progress – It is very important to visit your dentist or periodontist so that they can check your progress. If the regenerative process is not closely monitored, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Your periodontist will let you know if there are any problems with your progress. They can also change a few meds according to their assessment of your progress. If the healing is not going according to plan, there are a lot of things they can do to bring healing and regeneration back on track.
