RECONSTRUCTIVE MICROSURGERY

When tissue health is compromised, more intrusive treatments are used: periodontal surgery is reserved for patients where non-surgical treatment could not completely eliminate the cause of tissue inflammation around the teeth, aiming to reduce the damage caused by the periodontal disease.

Periodontal surgery offers more thorough root cleaning: by cutting and detaching the gum tissue, accessing the root and bone is far easier. It also helps stop the growth of bacteria that survive without oxygen and eliminates deep pockets, making it easier for the patient to take care of their teeth at home. 
 
Regenerative surgery consists of reconstructing the bone and gum tissue lost as a result of a periodontal disease or other disorders. The main indication for regenerative surgery is very deep bone defects. The technique involves using a graft of bone tissue which is then recovered by the gum structures or protective biocompatible membranes.

Modern regenerative techniques:

  • Mini-invasive procedures for bone and gum reconstruction which allow for artificial roots to be placed (implants)

  • Autologous bone transplant (from the patient)

  • Maxillary sinus lift. This surgical procedure means implants can be placed in the molar area of the upper arch, where the existing bone would not be sufficient

  • 3D bone reconstruction with a vertical and horizontal bone increase of the upper and lower jaw using biocompatible materials.
