Osseous Surgery

Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection that affects bone and gums around teeth. When supporting bone and gums around teeth are affected gum pockets will form. If left untreated these deep gum pockets collect even more bacteria, producing dental bone loss. Eventually, if too much bone is lost, the teeth will need to be extracted.

Osseous surgery is a gum pocket reduction procedure during which infected bone and gum tissue will be removed and areas where bacteria can hide will be cleaned and smoothed out. This will allow gums to better reattach to healthy bone and eliminate gum pockets.
