Bone Regeneration in Salt Lake City, UT
Under local anesthesia, disease-causing bacteria is surgically removed. Membranes, bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue.
Our Board Certified periodontist may recommend bone regeneration if your supporting bone tissue has been destroyed by periodontal disease or has deteriorated due to one or more missing teeth. There are a variety of bone regeneration procedures available.
When you receive a bone regeneration procedure, our periodontist will thoroughly examine your mouth and discuss your oral health needs with you in order to determine which type of treatment will be most effective for you. During your procedure, our periodontist will open the gum tissues to expose the bone, clean the area and add bone grafting materials and proteins to the site to encourage healing. This guided bone regeneration allows the grafted material to grow together with your natural bone tissue to create a stronger and more stable foundation for your teeth and implants.
Bone regeneration is a fairly common procedure. Our periodontist and team are trained in the latest treatment techniques and technologies and will provide anesthetic to ensure that you are comfortable during your procedure. We will also provide you with post-op instructions to help you recover quickly and without complications.

At the time of tooth extraction, Dr. Mangelson may feel that a bone graft is necessary to support the dental implant. Based on the individual patient, healing time may be required for the bone graft to be dense enough to place a dental implant.
After your dental implant has been placed it takes three to six months for the dental implant to completely fuse with the bone. This periodontal process is called osseointegration. Like a natural tooth root, this integration with the bone will create the needed support for your implant post and crown to function normally.
When a tooth is lost and not replaced, it is natural for the bone to recede. This natural process can create an altered facial appearance and muscle weakness.
Dr. Mark Mangelson can correct this defect with ridge augmentation and dental implant placement.

When a tooth is lost and not replaced, bone mass will be lost due to the missing tooth root. Along with weakening the jaw, you may appear older than your true age.
