Soft Tissue Regeneration

Soft Tissue Regeneration (GTR)

Clinical soft tissue regeneration procedures aim to augment keratinized tissue (thick and hard zone of gums) and to increase the volume of soft tissue. This will provide functional and biological stability of the tissues around teeth and implants.

Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) is a technique currently used in dentistry for periodontal surgery, oral surgery, implant dentistry, and reconstruction of maxillomandibular defects.

Tissue regeneration has been studied for decades, with modern technologies and biomaterials making the process more efficient and comfortable than ever before.

Guided tissue regeneration can help to achieve better oral hygiene, tissue stability, and improved aesthetics.

How it works

In essence, soft tissue regeneration is plastic surgery of the oral vestibule to modify the gingival and mucosal tissues that promote the formation of keratinized tissue. This, in turn, improves the quality and quantity of soft tissue. Soft tissue volume augmentation procedures are performed to compensate for deficits in both soft and hard tissues. Procedures that lead to a gain in the volume of the soft tissue are indicated to facilitate oral hygiene and to achieve tissue stability with improved aesthetics.
