Controlled Tissue Regrowth

What Is Guided Tissue Regeneration?

Dental Guided Tissue Regeneration is a periodontal surgical technique that regenerates lost periodontal tissues around teeth affected by disease, promoting controlled regrowth in damaged areas.

Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) is a surgical technique used in periodontics, which is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums and bone. GTR is specifically employed to regenerate lost or damaged periodontal tissues, such as bone and periodontal ligament, around teeth that have been affected by periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease can lead to the destruction of the supporting tissues of the teeth, resulting in gum recession, bone loss, and even tooth mobility or loss. GTR aims to facilitate the regrowth of these damaged tissues by creating a controlled environment that promotes their regeneration.

Managed Tissue Restoration

Benefits of Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) is a dental procedure that aims to promote the regeneration of lost or damaged periodontal tissues, including bone, ligaments, and gum tissue.

If you're considering GTR, it's recommended to consult with a qualified dental specialist to determine if it's the right treatment option for your specific situation.

Guided Tissue Renewal

Process of Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) is a dental and periodontal procedure used to promote the regeneration of lost or damaged gum and bone tissues around teeth. It typically involves the use of membranes and/or barrier materials to guide the growth of specific tissues.


Patient Assessment and Diagnosis

Conduct a thorough examination of the patient’s oral health, including assessing the extent of tissue and bone loss, probing depths, and any potential contributing factors such as periodontal disease. Make an accurate diagnosis and determine if GTR is appropriate.


Treatment Planning

Develop a comprehensive treatment plan that outlines the specific areas requiring GTR, the type of membrane or barrier material to be used, and any additional procedures that may be necessary (e.g., bone grafting). Customize the plan based on the patient’s needs and the desired clinical outcomes.


Preoperative Preparation

Educate the patient about the procedure, its benefits, and potential risks. Obtain informed consent. Provide preoperative instructions, such as dietary restrictions and oral hygiene measures to minimize the risk of postoperative complications.


Local Anesthesia

Administer local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. This step is crucial to minimize pain and discomfort during the surgical process.


Surgical Procedure

Perform a minimally invasive surgical procedure to access the affected area. Thoroughly clean the root surfaces and remove any diseased tissue. Place the membrane or barrier material in the designated area to guide tissue regeneration. The membrane prevents unwanted tissue growth and allows the desired tissues (gum and bone) to develop.


Suturing and Closure

Carefully suture the surgical site to secure the membrane or barrier material in place. Proper suturing ensures stability, prevents exposure of the membrane, and facilitates optimal tissue healing.


Postoperative Care and Monitoring

Instruct the patient on postoperative care, including prescribed medications, oral hygiene practices, and any dietary restrictions. Schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the healing progress, remove sutures if necessary, and make any adjustments to the treatment plan based on the patient’s response.


Long-Term Maintenance

Emphasize the importance of regular maintenance visits and good oral hygiene practices to promote successful tissue regeneration and prevent future complications. Provide ongoing monitoring of the treated area and make any necessary interventions to ensure the long-term health and stability of the regenerated tissues.

Guided Tissue Regeneration is a specialized dental procedure that promotes the regeneration of lost or damaged gum and bone tissue around teeth. It involves placing a barrier membrane over the affected area to prevent soft tissue from interfering with the growth of new bone and gum tissue.
GTR treatment is typically recommended for patients with periodontal disease or bone loss around teeth. It is also used in dental implant cases to create a stable and healthy foundation for the implant to integrate with the surrounding bone.
The duration of the GTR procedure varies depending on the complexity of the case. In most cases, the procedure can be completed in a single visit, but more extensive treatments may require multiple appointments.
GTR treatment is generally well-tolerated, and local anesthesia is used to numb the area during the procedure. Some patients may experience mild discomfort or soreness after the treatment, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
After GTR treatment, it is normal to experience some swelling and mild discomfort at the treatment site. Our team at Foundations: Perio Sleep Aesthetics will provide you with post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.

The timeline for seeing results after GTR treatment varies depending on the individual case and the extent of tissue regeneration required. Generally, you may start to notice improvements in gum and bone tissue after a few weeks to a few months.
Yes, GTR treatment can be combined with other dental procedures as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. It is often used in conjunction with periodontal treatments, dental implant placement, and other restorative procedures to achieve optimal oral health and aesthetics.
