Guided tissue regeneration
Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is a very similar surgical procedure to guided bone regeneration (GBR). Both surgical techniques offer an opportunity to regenerate lost tissue and both techniques depend on careful case selection for successful results. However, there is one significant difference between the two procedures. GBR grafting regenerates lost bone. GTR grafting offers the opportunity to regenerate lost bone, cementum (outer layer of the root surface), and periodontal ligaments.Schedule an appointment
In cases of periodontal bony defects, GTR using a combination of bone particles, barrier membranes, and matrix-derived proteins (Emdogain), can provide substantial regeneration of lost support structures.
Emdogain is a protein-based gel designed to promote predictable regeneration of lost periodontal hard and soft tissues caused by periodontitis (gum disease). This can help to save and preserve teeth. Emdogain encourages the regrowth of cementum, periodontal ligaments, and alveolar (jaw) bone. GTR grafting is often used in conjunction with other surgical procedures.
