One service that distinguishes us from other dentists in Colorado is our ability to perform guided bone tissue regeneration. Normally there is a healthy layer of keratinized gum surrounding each tooth which protects it from infection. The recession of this gum tissue due to aging or inadequate oral hygiene can leave teeth roots exposed and vulnerable to decay. As this gum tissue recedes the bone beneath it will also experience resorption, or degeneration, which compromises the basic strength of the jaw.

To perform regeneration, the gums in the affected area are first opened to expose the receding bone. Then a small piece of barrier membrane is attached into the affected area, which encourages new bone growth. The new bone growth provides benefits such as increased structural support for restorations, prevention of further bone resorption, and overall increased strength of the jaw bone. If you have experienced gum recession, there is no better dentist in Colorado Springs. Schedule an appointment today.
