Periodontal Bone Grafting
Bone loss around a tooth root (periodontal bone loss) weakens the support system for the tooth and creates a pocket where bacteria are protected and can grow to cause further damage. Correction of the problem starts with deep periodontal cleaning which will have to be done via a surgical approach.
The tooth surface is cleaned, the diseased tissue is removed and a bone graft is placed into the defect. A barrier membrane covers the graft and the tissues are closed. The graft heals over a four-month period. If the defects are complex other methods of bone grafting may be employed.
