As periodontal disease advances, pockets of deteriorated bone create in the jaw. These pockets can advance the development of bacteria and the spread of infection. To address these pockets, Dr. Tamir Segal may prescribe tissue regeneration. Between these surgeries, the pockets are cleaned completely, and a membrane is made between the delicate tissue and the pocket in the bone.
A portion of these membranes is mostly bio-absorbable and some needs removal. The layer covers the pocket so quickly developing delicate tissue is blocked, and slower-developing bone can start to develop, or recover itself. The success of the treatment, for the most part, relies upon the patient’s eagerness to pursue a strict post operation eating habit and careful oral care.
