How Osseous Surgery Can Restore Healthy Gums

How Osseous Surgery Can Restore Healthy Gums

Gum disease is a very common dental issue for many Americans. If you have tender, sensitive gums that bleed easily, you may have gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. Fortunately, there are several effective treatments that can restore healthy gums and help prevent further issues such as recession and tooth loss. Dr. Paul Fotek is an experienced periodontist who can diagnose the severity of your gum disease and recommend the most effective treatment. Depending on the severity of your condition, he may encourage osseous surgery. This procedure can target the underlying infection that causes common gum disease symptoms. What Is Involved in Osseous Surgery? One of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease is degraded gum and bone tissue around the teeth. This can leave large pockets that allow plaque to develop along, and even below, the gum line. If left untreated, these pockets can become larger and lead to tooth loss. This level of gum disease requires treatment beyond general cleaning and home care. In cases where the disease has progressed beyond response to nonsurgical treatments, osseous surgery can help restore healthy gum and bone tissue. Dr. Fotek may recommend this treatment if you have minimal bone tissue left to support your teeth. He will carefully trim out the infected and weakened gum and bone tissue. This creates a healthier environment that encourages the gum tissue to re-adhere to the teeth. Continued cleaning and periodontal care can prevent the bacterial infection from returning so you can enjoy continued oral health. What Are the Benefits of Osseous Surgery? Osseous surgery offers many benefits to patients, including:

  • Stopping infection from spreading by eliminating harmful bacteria
  • Reducing the size of periodontal pockets
  • Improving the health and strength of bone and gum tissue
  • Creating a healthier environment to discourage bacterial growth
