Regeneration

Jawbone volume can be lost due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, pressure from dentures or partial dentures, trauma, injury, or atrophy. This results in unsightly deformities or indentations in the bone which can produce an unattractive restoration, a cleansibility problem, or an inability to place dental implants.

Hard and soft tissue reconstruction — to build back lost structure — is an effective procedure to either prevent volume loss or remedy it, thus improving appearance, allowing dental implant placement or both.

Bone Regeneration

With periodontitis (gum disease), teeth can lose supporting bone resulting in loose teeth, a change in the way teeth fit together and function, and eventual tooth loss. Sometimes the underlying boney architecture will allow the bone to be rebuilt. Based on the best clinical research and a great clinical skillset, Dr. Newhouse uses the either materials from the patient’s own mouth or processed banked materials with biologics (proteins that speed healing) and resorbable membranes to reconstruct the loss jaw structure, tighten teeth, reestablish function, and save teeth. Dr. Newhouse has done thousands of such procedures and saved thousands of teeth!

Root Coverage

Root Coverage
Healthy gums form the “picture frame” for the teeth. They also protect the teeth against decay. Root exposure or recession makes the teeth look long and unattractive. Recession can also make the teeth sensitive to hot, cold, or touch. By recovering the roots and rebuilding the lost gum tissue, recession can be reversed, sensitivity decreased, and decay susceptibility reduced, resulting in a younger, prettier smile.

Socket Regeneration

Sometimes, teeth cannot be saved for a variety of reasons - cracks or fractures, root canal failures, teeth whose structure can’t be restored, or impacted teeth associated with adjacent teeth. When this is the case, Dr. Newhouse can remove the teeth and perform socket regeneration so that the dimensions of the jawbone can be protected. Without such socket regeneration as much as 30% of the jawbone dimensions in all directions can be lost. Protecting the bone’s width and length becomes important for implant placement, for other types of esthetic tooth replacement, and for the bone support of adjacent teeth. In the end, it provides the foundation for model smiles and health!
