What Is Osseous Surgery?
Osseous surgery performed by Dr. Rahmani of Manhattan Periodontics is useful for treating periodontitis or advanced gum disease. At Manhattan Periodontics and Implant Dentistry Center we will recommend osseous surgery if you have deep pockets around your teeth that haven’t responded to other treatments such as scaling and root planing. This may apply if the depths of gum pockets are in excess of 5 mm. We measure the depth by carefully inserting a periodontal probe into the gum pockets around your teeth.
It’s likely that the gum tissue around affected teeth will also be red and swollen and inflamed, and it may well bleed when probed. Without treatment these teeth could be at risk of becoming loose. Osseous surgery is used to try to save teeth, and to help reduce deep pockets so it’s easier for you to keep these areas clean.
It is a surgical procedure that helps to smooth and reshape the bone in the pockets, and the idea is to create a shallow pocket that will be much harder for bacteria to colonize.
Afterwards it should be easier to brush and floss around the treated teeth, improving the long-term health of your teeth and gums provided you have good oral hygiene at home.
During the procedure we will thoroughly clean the exposed root surface of the tooth which makes it much harder for the bacteria to grow and multiply while making it easier for your body to begin repairing your gums.
