Osseous surgery is a surgical procedure to remove diseased tissue and create a more hygienic healthy environment.
This surgery also recontours the bony architecture surrounding the teeth.
Most patients have already been through initial periodontal therapy at their general dentist office before this procedure is performed. Maintaining disease-free, healthy gingival tissues will require continued maintenance alternating between offices to ensure health.
What To Expect
How Well Does It Work?
Very well, but with todays advances in surgical technique, we look to additionally regenerate supporting bone and gum rather than resecting them. Our goal with this procedure is to create a maintainable, healthy environment.
All surgical procedures have a level of risk involved, from infection to swelling and other difficulties. The percentage of post-surgical difficulties from Osseous surgery is extremely low.
