Periodontal or gum disease can cause serious damage to the tissues and bones supporting your teeth. At Pearl Dentistry, we offer periodontal therapy and treatments to stop and control damage to your teeth and health from gum disease. In some cases, we may recommend Osseous surgery to repair bone in the jaw that has been damaged from pronounced periodontal disease.
What is Osseous Surgery?
When gum disease has progressed to the point of seriously damaging the tissues and bones surrounding teeth, surgery may be required for repair. Osseous surgery is used when other treatments like scaling and root planing or laser gum treatment are ineffective in treating the damaged area. This oral surgery removes bone and tissue that has been compromised due to periodontal disease to aid in stopping further damage to the teeth, jaw and gum tissues.
Osseous surgery can reshape gums and the jaw bone to improve the stability of teeth affected by gum disease. It also allows for deep penetration to remove plaque and tartar from the tooth roots. This procedure can be used in conjunction with other periodontal treatments to stop the infection, promote healing of the gums and prevent tooth loss.
