Guided Tissue Regeneration Surgery


Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) Surgery: Restoring your Teeth and Gum Health

What is Guided Tissue Regeneration?

Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) is a cutting-edge surgical procedure used in periodontics to restore your lost gum and bone tissue around teeth. It's a specialized technique that aims to regenerate bone and soft tissue that has been damaged due to periodontal disease or other dental conditions.

How Does GTR Work?

During GTR surgery, our skilled dental professionals carefully access the affected area, remove any harmful bacteria and damaged tissue, and then utilize membranes or tissue-stimulating proteins to encourage the growth of new bone and gum tissue. These membranes act as barriers, preventing unwanted tissue from invading the healing area while allowing the body's natural regenerative processes to take place.

When is GTR Recommended?

GTR is typically recommended in cases where significant gum and bone tissue loss has occurred, commonly due to advanced periodontal disease, trauma, or other oral health issues. It's an effective solution for:

  • Restoring damaged gum and bone tissue around teeth
  • Addressing gum recession
  • Enhancing the overall stability and health of the teeth and supporting structures

Benefits of GTR Surgery

  • Regeneration: Stimulates the body's natural ability to regrow lost gum and bone tissue.
  • Preservation: Helps in preserving natural teeth by restoring the supporting structures.
  • Improved Functionality: Enhances the stability and functionality of teeth and surrounding tissues.
  • Aesthetic Enhancement: Restores a more natural appearance by addressing gum recession or bone loss.

The GTR Procedure

Our dental team begins by thoroughly evaluating your oral health to determine the extent of tissue loss and the suitability for GTR. Once confirmed, we'll explain the procedure in detail, addressing any concerns you may have.

During the surgery:

  1. Preparation: Anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
  2. Tissue Access: The affected area is accessed, and damaged tissue is carefully removed.
  3. Membrane Placement: Special membranes or other regenerative materials are placed strategically to aid in tissue regrowth.
  4. Healing: Over time, new gum and bone tissue develop, restoring the damaged area.

Post-Procedure Care

Our team provides comprehensive post-surgery instructions to ensure optimal healing. This may include specific oral hygiene practices, dietary recommendations, and follow-up appointments to monitor progress.
