GTR technology helps the body regenerate bone in the jaw after a bone grafting procedure so that dental implants have the best chance for success.
Texarkana, Texas (PRWEB) March 20, 2018
Dr. Alejandro Kovacs, board-certified periodontist and prosthodontist, educates his community on the benefits of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) for bone grafting in Texarkana, TX. Bone grafting is a common prerequisite for dental implants since adequate bone volume is necessary to securely hold an implant post. GTR technology helps the body regenerate bone in the jaw after a bone grafting procedure so that dental implants have the best chance for success.
“When we do a bone graft around a tooth, it is because that tooth has had a lot of bone loss. We use this bone graft to rebuild the support of this tooth, giving it more stability and being able to keep that tooth for a longer term,” says Dr. Kovacs. “When patients have lost a tooth and they need a bone graft, it’s because we’re planning to do a dental implant. We want that implant fully covered with bone all the way around so it’s nice and solid.”
Dr. Kovacs offers a variety of dental implant options, including single implant placement and the All-on-4® full-arch solutions to restore function, health and aesthetics to patient’s mouths. Bone grafting may be required for any of these implant procedures and can involve ridge augmentations or sinus lifts in order to create enough stability for the implant post. Dr. Kovacs has 15 years of experience in implantology and bone grafting and is passionate about helping patients achieve healthy, attractive and functional smiles.
Removing bone from other parts of the body when receiving GTR treatment is not always required. Bone can be gathered from a donor source or synthetic material, and when combined with GTR or other tissue stimulating proteins, stimulate the body to regrow what was lost. After bone has been restored, the jaw line will appear more even and dental implants can be placed successfully.
