Regenerating Bone Tissues of the Jaw - What to Know


Posted on 12/30/2016 by Scholes Periodontics & Implants

One of them involves regenerating bone tissue - using materials from one of a variety of sources.

Can You Regenerate Bone?


Fortunately, the answer is yes! Bone is a living tissue and, just as your body will regenerate soft tissue - think about how a cut on your hand heals - it can also regenerate bone tissue.

Of course the process is a little bit more complicated than what is involved in a cut on your hand healing, and it must be done under the guidance of a qualified dental professional (that is what we're here for!), but in short, yes, it can be done.

How Do You Do It


There are a few different ways to regenerate bone tissue. The most common involves making an incision in the gum tissue to expose the jaw bone. We can then add a grafting material to the bone. This grafting material is organic in nature and helps to guide the jaw bone as it grows.

Another method we may be able to use in regenerating bone tissue involves taking tissue from elsewhere in your body, or even taking tissue from a donor. We can graft this tissue into your existing jaw bone, and your body will eventually heal over the tissue. What will be created will be new jaw bone material.
