Guided Bone Regeneration in Midtown Atlanta & Roswell
Missing one or more teeth? Need an implant or denture?
Ensure a strong and stable foundation for your restoration!
When you’re missing one or more teeth, it causes problems for your jaw. With nothing left to support, your jawbone will slowly start to disintegrate, a process known as resorption.
That’s where Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) comes in. This procedure rebuilds the bone that’s been lost, creating an adequate, strong, and stable foundation to replace a missing tooth.
What is Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR)?
Guided Bone Regeneration has been a staple of implant dentistry for over 40 years. This procedure encourages the growth of new bone at the site of a missing tooth, stabilizing the area and creating new and healthy bone structure.
Do you need a GBR procedure?
To successfully replace a missing tooth, we first need to ensure that your jawbone is healthy. Not only does your jaw need to be stable, you also need enough bone structure to hold the restoration in place.
However, just because you’re missing a tooth doesn’t mean you automatically need Guided Bone Regeneration before a restoration procedure. We’ll evaluate the site of your missing tooth to determine the health of your jawbone and whether or not GBR is necessary.
If we do recommend GBR as necessary for the long-term success of your implant or denture, we’ll make sure you know exactly what to expect.
Although it can take many months for your bone to fully integrate after a GBR procedure, our periodontists can often place an implant or denture at the same time that a GBR procedure is performed.
