Your jawbone is what supports your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, severe periodontal infection dissolves parts of your jawbone.
This bone loss can eventually lead to the loss of your teeth. The first step of treatment is to remove the periodontal disease, which halts the bone loss. Then we repair the damage that has occurred. In some cases, various bone grafting techniques can be used to re-grow some of the jawbone that was destroyed by disease.
Procedure: The periodontist administers a local anesthetic and gently opens the area. He or she then removes the periodontal disease, repairs the bone damage and fills in the damaged area with bone grafting material.
