An Innovative Procedure: Guided Tissue Regeneration in King of Prussia, PA

King of Prussia Dental™ Associates is a BBB accredited dental practice with over 30 years of experience, specializing in guided tissue regeneration for patients in Phoenixville and surrounding cities.

The most recent procedure general dentistry practices offer periodontitis patients is guided tissue regeneration. As specialists explain, periodontitis appears when plaque accumulates and damages the bone tissue of the teeth. The gums retract, leaving gaps between them, where food residue and bacteria can accumulate, causing further damage.

Guided tissue regeneration helps the bone tissue re-grow, filling up these gaps. The GTR dental procedure has three steps:

  • The dentists perform surgery on the gum and bone, opening a flap and cleaning it of all bacteria;
  • A membrane containing bone graft material is inserted in the flap and provides space for the bone to re-grow;
  • Once the bone heals, the membrane and stitches dissolve or the dentists remove them.

The entire process of guided tissue regeneration takes about six months.

Do You Qualify for Guided Tissue Regeneration?

The GTR dental procedure is recommended not only as a solution for the periodontic disease but also for other patients. For instance, if you prepare for dentistry work involving implants, your dentist may recommend guided tissue regeneration as a preparatory step.

An implant needs a solid bone structure to take hold. Thus, if you suffer from periodontitis, you may not receive a tooth implant without guided tissue regeneration. Your dentist will advise you on your eligibility to receive this dental procedure and explain everything that specifically applies to your case.
