Bone Regeneration

In some cases, the bone damage around the tooth can be such that it lends itself toward successful bone regeneration. A variety of techniques and materials are available for this purpose. Dr. Melnyk has been successfully regenerating bone around teeth since 1986. In many cases, teeth can be saved and maintained in health, saving the patient the significant costs involved in extracting and replacing a tooth with implants or bridgework.
