Regenerative Procedures

Procedures that regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.

Your periodontist may recommend a regenerative procedure when the bone supporting your teeth has been destroyed due to periodontal disease. These procedures can reverse some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue.

During this procedure, your periodontist folds back the gum tissue and removes the disease-causing bacteria. Membranes (filters), bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body's natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue.

Eliminating existing bacteria and regenerating bone and tissue helps to reduce pocket depth and repair damage caused by the progression of periodontal disease. With a combination of daily oral hygiene and professional maintenance care, you'll increase the chances of keeping your natural teeth – and decrease the chances of other health problems associated with periodontal disease.

If you have not seen a dentist for some time, and you think you may have gum disease, book an appointment to see your Eustace Dental & Implant Clinic dentist in Sevenoaks, straight away on 01732 452233.

Ben Palin

Ben is a patient focused dentist who enjoys providing high quality evidence-based dentistry. He strives to combine both aesthetics and function to provide the best possible treatment. Throughout his career he embraced further training and education in order to develop professionally and improve his knowledge and skills for the benefit of his patients.

In the past 6 years he developed and nurtured an interest in periodontology. This started with attending lectures and study clubs and has progressed. He is now in the final year of study of a MClinDent in Clinical Periodontology. He utilises this knowledge and skills by delivering periodontal treatment to the more complex cases within the practices on a daily basis.

Ben joined the Army upon graduation and held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He left the Army in 2019 and is enjoying working in a civilian practice.

Ben's aspiration is to complete the MClinDent and work both as a periodontist and general dentist whilst working towards acceptance on the Specialist list.

He is strong believer in lifelong learning and enjoys learning new and developing existing skills.

Ben attains CPD by reading journals, attending BDA section meetings, organising study days, attending peer reviews and clinical “hands on” meetings and attending the MClinDent modules.
