(Guided Tissue Bone Regeneration)
Traditionally, gum disease has been treated by removing gum pockets and by eliminating gum tissue that has been infection. Though this practice is still effective in treating gum disease, newly-developing technologies and procedures have been developed and are used more often today.
Lost gum and bone tissue can be regenerated using the process of guided tissue bone regeneration. Usually, membranes are put in place over the bone defects. Still, bioactive gels are sometimes required to regenerate bone tissue.
