Are you suffering from bleeding gums, gum recession, or shifting teeth? These are all signs of periodontal disease, ranging from mild to severe. Gum disease treatment at any stage can save your smile from the damage caused by this oral infection and restore the health of your teeth and gums. Osseous surgery can treat the infection that causes your symptoms and preserve your oral health. Dr. Paul Fotek, our periodontist in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, performs this safe and effective gum disease treatment. Benefits of the procedure include:
Amazing, gentle doctor. I have great respect for Dr Fotek. Like many people I don’t like dental work. At his new office I was so relaxed and it felt like I was at a spa, not getting dental surgery.
– Michael F.
The bacteria responsible for your infection create spaces between your teeth and their protective gum tissue. Settling into these newly formed pockets, the bacteria will continue to break down the tissue and supporting bone and cause these pockets to deepen even further, evidenced by the gum recession that is spoiling your smile. With this gum disease treatment, Dr. Fotek retracts the gum tissue to access the roots of the teeth. Tartar deposits are removed, and the roots and bone smoothed to encourage reattachment of healthy gum tissues. Once the infected, diseased areas of tissue are eliminated, he will gently pull the gum tissues into a more ideal position so they may once again act as a barrier for tooth roots.
This gum disease treatment can stop the advancement of your infection and prevent further oral damage, while leaving your teeth and gums healthier and cleaner. After osseous surgery, our periodontist in Palm Beach Gardens, FL will most likely recommend periodontal maintenance cleanings at regular intervals. Periodontal maintenance visits are special cleanings and evaluations for your teeth and gums that allow us to control the growth of bacteria and monitor your oral health after your initial gum disease treatment.
