Guided Bone Regeneration


If your supporting bone has deteriorated due to gum disease, our dentist may recommend guided bone regeneration to help you regain healthy bone tissue. Dr. Henry Qiu will thoroughly examine your mouth and supporting oral structures to determine if this is the right treatment for you. Call 5D Smiles at 562-923-4538 to schedule an appointment and learn more about guided bone regeneration in Downey, California.

Guided bone regeneration (GBR) is a procedure which works to help regenerate bone tissue. It is most often recommended when the bone has deteriorated or a defect in the bone remains, making the bone unable to support dental implants or your remaining teeth. When you receive a GBR procedure, our dentist will take bone grafting material and place the material into the treatment area. This grafting material is usually taken from other areas of the body, but it may also be taken from another individual, a bone bank, a synthetic source or an animal. We will discuss your options with you to find the right option for your needs.

Once placed, this grafting material integrates with your natural bone, growing together to regenerate healthy supporting bone and eventually restoring the lost jawbone structure. Once your jawbone has recovered, our dentist will work with you to help ensure your dental implants or other tooth replacement option are placed properly.

We invite you to call us for more information about guided bone regeneration or to make an appointment with our dentist.
