Periodontal Disease Linked to Cardiovascular Disease

While current research does not yet provide evidence of a causal relationship between the two diseases, scientists have identified biologic factors, such as chronic inflammation, that independently link periodontal disease to the development or progression of cardiovascular disease in some patients. - PRNews wire.

Guided Bone Tissue Regeneration


Guided Bone Tissue Regeneration

Guided bone regeneration or GBR, and guided tissue regeneration or GTR are dental surgical procedures that utilize barrier membranes to direct the growth of new bone and gingival tissue at sites having insufficient volumes or dimensions of bone or gingiva for proper function, esthetics or prosthetic restoration.

GBR is similar to guided tissue regeneration (GTR) but is focused on development of hard tissues in addition to the soft tissues of the periodontal attachment. At present, guided bone regeneration is predominantly applied in the oral cavity to support new hard tissue growth on an alveolar ridge to allow stable placement of dental implants. Used in conjunction with sound surgical technique, GBR is a reliable and validated procedure.

A regenerative procedure may be recommended when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed. These procedures can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue. In most cases regenerative procedures are done in conjunction with pocket reduction procedures. During this procedure, your gum tissue is folded back and the disease-causing bacteria are removed. Membranes, bone grafts and/or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body’s natural ability to regenerate lost bone and tissue.


Dr. Michael Schacter, D.M.D.,  performs alveolar bone-grafting procedures to reconstruct the jaws in preparation for implants. Regenerative procedures also provide us with the ability to grow bone in areas where bone was lost due to tooth extractions. This gives us the opportunity to place dental implants of proper length and width as well as restore functionality and esthetics. The bone graft procedures are:


•Sinus life procedures: The sinus membrane is elevated and bone graft is placed onto the sinus floor allowing implants to be placed in the back part of the upper jaw.

•Ridge-augmentation: In severe cases the ridge has been reabsorbed following a tooth extraction. A bone graft is placed to increase the height and width of the jawbone.

•Ridge preservation: Immediately following tooth extraction a bone graft is placed in the extraction socket to preserve the jaw bone for future restoration.
