Osseous Surgery

middle-aged, smiling coupleOsseous surgery is performed to treat periodontal disease. Incisions are made around the teeth, and the gum tissue is pulled back slightly. This provides access to thoroughly remove all plaque and calculus. Irregularities of the bone caused by the disease are treated and the tissue is replaced around the tooth, closer to the bone. When the procedure is completed, dissolving sutures are often used. A protective dressing may be placed around the necks of the teeth to cover the surgical area and to help secure the new gum-to-tooth relationship. You will need to be seen in 10-14 days to remove any remaining sutures and to evaluate your healing.

By moving the gum closer to the bone, the pockets will be reduced. However, the teeth will appear longer and the spaces between the teeth will be larger. There may also be sensitivity to cold air and liquids.
