Guiding Bone & Tissue Regeneration

Gum disease has traditionally been treated by trimming away the infected gum tissue and re-contouring the uneven bone tissue. Although this eliminates the gum pockets, new and more sophisticated procedures are used routinely today.

One of these advancements is guided bone regeneration, also referred to as guided tissue regeneration. This procedure is used to stabilize endangered teeth or to prepare the jaw for dental implants.

What to Expect from This Procedure

As periodontal disease progresses, pockets of degenerated bone develop in the jaw. These pockets can promote the growth of bacteria and the spread of infection. To address these pockets, we may recommend tissue regeneration.

During this surgical procedure, the pockets are cleaned thoroughly, and a membrane is installed between the soft tissue and the pocket in the bone.

Some of these membranes are bio-absorbable, and some require removal. The membrane covers the pocket so that fast-growing soft tissue is blocked, and slower-growing bone can begin to grow or “regenerate” itself.

Guiding Bone & Tissue Regeneration Aftercare

The procedure's effectiveness generally depends on the patient’s willingness to follow a strict postoperative diet and careful oral care.

“I’m very glad I discovered Dr. Ferber. I came to him because I had a multitude of dental problems. The teeth were just a disaster, and I was totally embarrassed to smile. I kept replacing teeth and going in for crowns and root canals. Finally, I decided I wanted to go for a full-mouth implant.  I wish I had done this many years ago. The results are just exemplary. If you’re suffering like I was for many, many years, do not hesitate.”

“People ask me all the time where I got my new smile done and I tell them Dr. Ferber. Before I got the work done, I didn’t feel very confident. I didn’t want anyone to see me smile. And now, I love to smile, and I get so many compliments on my smile. It was an easy, painless experience. The staff was great, and the price was right.”


“Dr. Ferber really knows his stuff. Since I had my teeth really done over, I have my smile back. And I have my giggle back! I would say that anybody questioning what they should do, they should come here. The whole team treats you like you’re family. They’re warm and they care.”

“Your staff is very professional and friendly, as always. Who looks forward to going to the dentist?!?! Not many. But your office makes it seem less of a disagreeable task. Don’t misunderstand, I still don’t like going. But if I have to, I’m glad I go to your practice!”
