What Can I Do to Stimulate Gum and Bone Growth?
Hi, I have had quite a bit of gum recession and bone loss. I have glucose level issues and have had hormonal treatments in the past. This is when I seem to have lost control of my gums. I lost chunks of gum during this period. I have had my teeth dealt with by a periodontist and am still having follow up appointments.
I would like to know what I can do to stimulate gum and bone growth. Are there any supplement/medication suggestions or procedures to help, considering that my sugar levels are still a bit high?
Hello and thank you for your question. Unfortunately the gums and bone won’t regrow. The only thing you could try is a graft to build up the gum level, although not all patients are suitable. I would ask your periodontist next time you see them to see if you’re a suitable candidate.
