What distinguishes Dr. Bott from other dentists in Utah County is his bone tissue grafting skills. This procedure encourages the regeneration process when substantial gum deterioration has taken place. The recession of gum tissue exposes the bone and causes it to degenerate which compromises the strength of your jaw.
To perform the grafting procedure, a small piece of bone is taken from another part of the body (usually, from chin or the back of the jaw) and attached to the affected area with medical-grade titanium screws. The grafted bone enables the regeneration process by minimizing the bone exposure. It also increases the strength of your jaw.
